This show is edgy, thought provoking, and oh, so provative. I loved it. The show starting out with the best question: Blind or Deaf. Its days since I’ve seen the show and I am still pondering that question. The cast is perfect. I love the young couple, the very grounded wise and keep it real assistant. This show really stirred, so many thoughts about: money, sex and how we use our own personal resources to get ahead. Yes. No. Maybe, really awakens the energy of this new world breaking away from our Puritanical past.DeeDee was so grounded and funny. Being raised Southern Baptist, I found the young woman (as part of the couple) interesting, and fearless, this sort of dangerous open mindedness, I found myself rooting for her at times. What stood out the most to me in the writing was the twist of prospective. In society, we always see the one with the means of money and power as the predator, but In Yes. No. Maybe, I found myself understanding and compassionate for his loss. I am so excited Yes. No. Maybe has extended, I just might stop by again, this time with a large popcorn.
I loved that she is so strong, but allows her vulnerability to shine as well. I loved her poetry, and the way she used her words…there was a moment when we (the audience) was so with her, singing with her…it was truly beautiful.Is a strong and powerful commentary on life in America. As we live and strive in this ever changing world of technology, great advancements in science, and the very colorful world of cultural diversity, how are we as a society allowing this thing of disregard, insulting and marginalizing people of African decent in this country. It is profound. Shanara, tells a sceniro of a woman getting upset and calling her a very negative derogatory name, how is this even possible in this day and time that we are now living in, its all so quite disgusting. Her show is insightful, it is educational, and it is inspiring. With so many show in the festival, I am so happy I saw Ask A Black Woman.
Wow, wow, wow, (Im) Perfekt is daring and bold. Jannica takes us on a creative and insightful ride of introspection on how we go through life so consumed with how we look, who we want to be, who we think we are, and the constant labling of others and ourselves. Her character work is stunning. I love all the characters so fun and smart. Alopecia blaming immune system was simply genius. Jannica’s story was so heartfelt and moving, I laughed and I definitely cried. Thank you for this amzing message and reminder of how important it is to look deeper into ourselves, beyond what we perceive as perfect.
