“Cooper has a naturalistic quality onstage; she’s striking without stealing attention and has a wonderful, moving breakdown towards the end of the play. You root for her and she never becomes 'cloying' or even worse 'adorkable'. She’s sassy, brassy, and even though she’s unsure of what her future should be, she’s confident enough in herself that you believe she’ll get there soon. “ - The Arts Wire Weekly

Combine that with the truly wonderful performances by the cast and you end up with some of the most natural friendships and relationships I have seen on stage. ” - Theatre is Easy
