What I liked

Cherise is a powerhouse of energy and creativity! She owns the space from the first moment she walks on stage and keeps the audience on the edge of their seats, hungry for her next word. She is funny and intelligent and lights up the room with a mega-watt smile. Her bravery and honesty are breathtaking and she is fearless in her ability to face difficult realities and share them with us in an unapologetic way. Her ability to transform the depths of her struggles grounds the piece in such truth that it is heartbreaking and relateable. It was moving while still hilarious!

What I didn't like

No complaints.

My overall impression

Cherise is dynamic, funny, brave, honest, endearing, energetic, powerful and a thrill to watch. I was on the edge of my seat and wanting more! And she didn’t disappoint!
