"My husband and I attended your Women of '76 show.  I was spell-bound by the passion that you put into your performance to bring these women to life for us.  When I spoke of your show to my friends, they asked "what new information did you learn?"   My answer was "everything".  All five ladies that you portrayed were unknown to me.   Not anymore!  Thank your for an entertaining, educational and totally fun time.   I just love your enthusiasm!"   Steffi Small , audience member
