Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...As a black sheep oldest child myself, I feel her pain. But as someone who loves to hear the truth told with grace and humor, I also feel her glory in overcoming many obstacles and making a glowing work of art that I think anyone with a pulse will enjoy. Director Geoffrey Rivas and The Latino Theater Company also deserve a great deal of credit in giving Nancy Ma a platform and in helping to shape and stage her narrative with such force and simplicity."

Peoples World - Somewhat Recommended

"...I don’t believe the hour and a half we spent with Ma was well rewarded with such a mundane truism as its quasi-evangelical message that we are asked to accept. I hesitate to even call this a “play,” because although evolutionary and chronological, it lacks depth, conflict and convincing emotion. A “solo show” is a more apt term here, a showcase for what she can do. Having said which, Nancy Ma does indeed display an admirable range of proficiencies which could be put to fine use in any number of theatrical or film roles. Her bio does cite some experience, and I hope she gets more of a chance to grow in her chosen profession."
