One year and one day ago, I had just seen and reviewed Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl. Today, I saw the sequel, and I must say I was just as impressed with Rebecca's talent this year as I was when I first saw her. Putting on a one-woman show still appears to be so simple when watching Rebecca onstage, and her natural affinity for performing makes watching her a pleasure.
The minute she began the show, I immediately remembered the storyline from the prequel, as she picked up where she left off last year, and was drawn straight back into Joanie's world. With the use of narration and music, Rebecca told a story of Joanie and several other people with ease and charisma. It was never unclear which character she was portraying and she had the audience's attention from start to finish.
Rebecca has a beautiful voice and a natural talent for singing, shown by how effortlessly she fills a room with her voice. Her acting is relaxed and comfortable and she looks very much at home on a stage. The storyline was compelling and intriguing and I already want to know what happens next! She shows great imagination and creativity in her work and it is a joy to watch her perform.
This is a fun, amusing and upbeat show full of music and laughter, and I definitely recommend you see it.
