Editorial Reviews

Honolulu Weekly
Each monologue is a separate, individual storyline that gives us a slice of local life, and often tends to veer toward the satiric, bizarre or downright weird-albeit always within the realm of possibilities. The laughter that Cataluna's script elicits, in fact, stems from the fact that you recognize some of these people as denizens of your own local Longs . . . . In the monologues, Cataluna seems to be testing a more robust edginess and darkness in combination with her humor.
