Loved it! Ai is a joy to watch. The show is so funny, yet also moving. I didn't want it to end! It's rare to find a one woman show that can keep you laughing. Ai is charming, funny, engaging, and the show is a pure delight.... full review

I was immediately pulled in by Ai's refreshing storytelling! She does an amazing job at captivating the audience's heart with her brilliant performance! Her talent is seen throughout the performance with the various characters she plays that partake on her story of coming to America.

A beautifully crafted, extremely brave story of growing up and finding yourself while also trying to understand American culture. Ai's performance is honest, heartwarming, funny, and at times -- heartbreaking. Definitely recommend this show!... full review
