- Sheana Ochoa, SLAM
"Tiffany shows off her exceptional range as a singer, actress, dancer, and physical comedic performer that screams sequel. It feels like a Part Two is eminent or at least a tv pilot. Take your pick. But this is one one-woman show worth your time because Tiffany Phillips is a quadruple-threat."
- Michael Ajakwe, Pipedream Productions
"Phillips is a triple threat - acting, dancing, singing - all of which she does with both power and finesse. Her story is brilliantly written and acted in such a way that the audience can immediately identify with the characters and sympathize with the story. GO see the incredible piece of genius!"
