BOB LEGGETT indie voice blog certified reviewer June 16, 2019
She has directed a very interesting story of survival from a cult that led to freedom for Nicole Steinwedell. The show felt like Steinwedell was the poster child for ADHD, as she told her story in short bursts of non-stop energy. She definitely kept her sold-out house intrigued and engaged, and for that alone she should be praised. ... full review

Don’t miss this one! Three chances left! Steinwedell takes us on a raw, harrowing journey - delivering the goods with a deeply personal exploration of her past, present, and future. You’ll laugh and you’ll rightfully feel uneasy at times - but that’s the payoff of this honest, bold, and engaging one-woman show. It’s what we want from theatre: to be challenged and to be granted access to unique stories outside of our own adventure. Must see! ... full review
