Published Reviews

"An elegant writer with a keen eye for description, she paints her experiences vividly in her wry, witty, warm and ultimately revealing script."

The Washington Post

"A metaphor of resilience...done with a self aware humor and a literary acuteness that make her hour on the stage an enlarging experience."

The New York Times

"With self effacing humor and gut wrenching honesty, she weaves a tale of personal loss and takes us on a spiritual journey that ends in redemption and rebirth. The laughter is as spontaneous as the flicker of recognition that passes through the audience. She's suddenly Everywoman, standing there for all of us our mothers, our sisters, our daughters, ourselves."

The Boston Globe

"The script and her performance shine with the polished gleam of authenticity and beauty."

The Texas Triangle

"Her observations are always astute, usually wry and invite at least an inner smile of recognition. Some are laugh-out-loud funny."

The Cincinnati Enquirer

"A writer of endearing wit and a performer of considerable charm, Miller allows us to share her pain, by proudly assuring us that she still feels beautiful and sexy and powerful. She mutes our private fears."

The Courrier Journal (Louisville, Kentucky)

"In her rueful, comical solo, Obie winner Susan Miller achieves what all engrossing autobiography aims at: revealing the human condition poetically by using the self as exhibit A."
