Kudos & Accolades: “How I Lost One Pound, The Musical”

I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the performance!  Everything you wrote resonated deeply with me.  You see, I used to weigh 300 pounds. This musical made my heart literally sing every point, every joke, every song – you were writing about my life. KM

I really enjoyed your play!  It was funny-I laughed a lot, really at myself because the characters reflected soooo many accurate ridiculous beliefs and rationalizations and down-right obsessions that I’ve encountered in my own brain for most of my life concerning that ridiculous obsession that most (if not all) women are culturally conditioned to buy into-weight!  It occurred to me that most of the men in the audience would perceive this in one of two ways;  “it does not compute,” as the complete and utter craziness that woman subject themselves to, (but certainly not that men can relate to), or as a real education in terms of the horrific pressure that the media and  stupid attitudes about physical attractiveness placed on women.  It was poignant!  And by the end of the play, I was able to truly appreciate the unique beauty of each woman on stage and feel the fabulous sense of liberation with the affirmations and freedom that they beautifully pulled off.  My only disappointment was that you were not acting in it as well.  AND the timing was great and each character held their own and kept the pace moving.  I loved the music and eloquent words-very clever.

I LOVED the show. As a woman and someone who has attempted to lose one pound, the parody of women’s dieting experiences was bang on. Your show was philosophical, but never heavy…hysterical, true to life, and the dialogue and songs were a hoot. Your actors are all fabulous. Loved them all. I was thrilled to see the big crowd. Congratulations my very talented friend. was so happy for you tonight.  PANCAKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  SN
