Review by ERNEST KEARNEY

June 19, 2018 original article

What I liked

Again Ai. The moments where she firmly in place worked wonderfully. And the insights of a wide-eyed innocent little girl coming to America were fascinating.

What I didn't like

I’m afraid I just didn’t feel the show was ready to be staged. A lot of the impact of the show was lost due to unfocused directing and a lack of sharpness. But these problems could be fix with merely the addition of rehearsal.

My overall impression

My favorite part of the show was Ai herself dancing about the stage like a perky imp. She was a complete joy to watch and very funny.
