Michael's Daughter is a great one woman show that exposes Ciera's relationship with her incarcerated father, spicy Cajun aunt, and loveable (in her own way) mother. This original New Awlins’ story will make you laugh, cry, sing, dance and appreciate your family even more. It truly is a must see!...
Ciera was AMAZING!! I was an emotional journey from beginning to end! All of her characters were so distinct and REAL. I feel like I know them all! There was never a dull moment! I know this up n coming actress will become a legend!!...
I loved the play!!!! I have a family that is different yet similar to the character that was presented in the play. I think that this play has the potential to go to broadway.
I will see it again!!!...
