AUDIENCE REVIEWS for And Now, No Flip Flops?!:

"Mark of a good show? Laughter, tears, thunderous applause."

- Catherine Sonquist Forest, SF LGBT Center audience member

“Eliza brings a fresh, spirited look at our most interesting topic: Ourselves! I’ve seen her show twice and it’s a delight! Funny, provocative, poignant, personal.”

– Arje Shaw, Broadway Playwright

“Eliza’s a compelling performer in possession of a sharp wit. She handles a very delicate topic–the dissolution of a marriage–in an honest and, this really is true, entertaining fashion.”

– Bruce Pachtman, Producer, Solo Sundays

"Now that our community finally has the legal right to marry, Eliza's brilliantly performed story about life after lesbian divorce is ironic and timely. Her ability to physically become multiple characters and move between them in unique and unexpected ways is captivating. She shows us with incredible humor and poignancy just how difficult and unbearable grief and heartbreak can be for all of us - queer, questioning, gay and straight - and that somehow, we all do make it to the other side."

- Sherilyn Adams, Executive Director, Larkin Street Youth Services

" Eliza gets to the core of the experience of grief and does it with a fresh, unscripted humor. She takes us through every hilariously failed attempt to cope with a divorce and an upended life until we reach with her a place that is familiar to all of us – trapped. In one moment she yells  'I just want something to change!' And then, astounded, announces 'and then it does.' We are astounded with her. "

- Susan Maxwell, SF Audience member

“As if the tragedy of losing one’s flip flops isn’t compelling (and humorous) enough, Eliza’s performance includes surviving a litany of life’s many other tragedies including divorce, a custody battle over a Rhodesian Ridgeback, and the painful and difficult process of simply moving forward following heartbreak. Eliza deftly manages all of this with no shortage of humor throughout. I was hoping for an encore!”

– Matt Forsman, Rogue Festival audience member
