The vulnerability of Amanda’s story is both relatable and endearing. We root for Mandy right out of the gate, as she takes us on her version of the ride to empowerment and self-acceptance that just about every human being experiences in their own way. We see ourselves in Mandy, and she gives us hope. Plus, as a fun literary device, Mandy occasionally breaks out in cover songs with new, original lyrics that act as a Greek chorus, which adds humorous commentary to her story. It’s a very element device that works well in the context of her show. I love it!
