A good mix of spoken word with a few original songs mixed in. The stories were vivid and I was able to watch the action in my mind as they recounted their tales which is how I believe good theatre succeeds. By allowing the audience to interact with the performances I became part of it.
What I didn't like
If the storytellers told the stories from memory it would help create a better connection with the audience and a better performing arts experience.
My overall impression
A intimate night of stories about womanhood. The stories went from humorous to heartbreaking and back again ending just right on an upbeat note. Director Kathleen Rubin curated a compelling, evenly weighted evening of heartfelt stories by the women who lived them. With a different collection of storytellers for each performance, I look forward to seeing it again. Great concept and execution. A thoroughly enjoyable evening of theatre.
