"[Tabitha] inhabits her family’s story with charm and great loyalty, and comes out a winner."

David Zampatti , Seesaw Magazine

"a wonderfully insightful show that involves the whole community."

Laura Money, Fourth Wall Media

"For all the historical shenanigans and the show stopping numbers that make us cringe with the underlying racism threaded into the classic lyrics, it is that personal journey that is the most heart-warming, honest, and intensely moving. Woo leaves a little bit of herself up there on the stage…"

Dave O'Connell, X-Press Magazine

"masterfully balances funny and playful with thoughtful commentary on the West’s persevering habit of romanticising Orientalism... Woo herself delivers a warm and engaging performance."
