"A classy music-and-comedy celebration! It will make a lot of people feel empowered. It does so with integrity, craft, and heart! " - Chicago Tribune
"That's a real audience emitting real belly laughs and crying real tears, dancing, singing and celebrating. I have never seen an audience so affected in the course of watching theater. They left feeling better about themselves, with renewed confidence that they are part of a larger community, emboldened that it's never too late to start living again."- Denver Post
