What I liked

How Maliabeth was able to completely change from one character into another without pause. It was really incredible to watch.

What I didn't like

My only note is I wish that they didn’t have a music show in the next room.

My overall impression

The collaboration between the writer and actress was something that I could only describe as, beautiful magic. Ruth wrote a character with a multitude of layers, dealing with perfection and self-love that are extremely relevant and relatable to our society today. A character that I must say was nothing short of scary. It is every woman’s worst nightmare to become her, but we also all play with that line every day. Maliabeth took the words off the page and fully unhinged herself, crossing that line. She brought you into the darkest places of not just her mind but yours too.

After Maliabeth walked off stage the guy next to me said, “Woah, that was really good, huh?” We both just sat there in silence for a few minutes thinking about what just happened before we got up.
