Super cute and sweet story - small town girl hits the big city with big dreams and bitter disappointments. I’m sure many can relate. ... full review
AI YOSHIHARA certified reviewer June 23, 2018
I loved her journey of how she grew as a good actress. Her life experience in NY was very relatable to us, actors. She faced loneliness, frustration and difficulty of searching for love. She did a great job tell her story with her sweetness and charm. ... full review
BOB LEGGETT certified reviewer June 22, 2018
The show takes us through her eight-week class, week by week, as she learns the important lessons about the search for success in the world of acting. We laugh, we get frustrated, we remember similar events in our own lives, and leave the theater refreshed, encouraged and ready to tackle our own dreams. This one is a gem, and Jessica Lynn Johnson has outdone herself in her skillful direction and discovery of Grace’s powerful story.... full review

This story is so very relatable. Any actor or artist who moved to LA to pursue their art should really come to this show! Melinda is also a fantastic storyteller and keeps you engaged throughout this whole show. This show has a nice balance of comedy and drama that makes you leave feeling inspired to continue to follow your dreams and put your happiness first. ... full review

WHOAH! LOOKS GOOD! Seriously. #Seriously

From 2x winners of Best of Fringe! Boxing Your Demons: Like if David Lynch became a health/fitness influencer and made an immersive theatre show about cognitive dissonance. Cute workout clothes and chakra crystals recommended. #gratitude
