Finally a new musical that matters!
30 May 2020 | by natpereyraSee all my reviews

Janelle is just genius... Using her music, sense of art, knowledge of her surroundings to express the inequity that we're living in, trying to wake up people thru their senses is just beauty itself... This is a brave black non binary "famous" woman who is shouting out injustice and claiming freedom therefore her great value, this is hard to find we should pay more attention to her and appreciate her in this present, her present... The people who wrote distasteful reviews are as superfitial as their writing, these are the ones that still see things without reflecting on it, these people are dormant and afraid of change so don't be fool by their bickering / mockery and fear better if you watch this piece of Art as it is: a bright shout for freedom and equity in these grey times... P.S. And of course Tessa was wonderful as always. Let's they continue creating functional beauty. Thank you!
