The performance, honesty, candor, love and humility–was outstanding! The entire presentation had a warm and compassionate approach. Her presentation was so powerful.
Profoundly moving, heartfelt, courageous and altogether inspiring, Regi’s “Snap” is a perfectly constructed story in which we travel with her as she takes us into ourselves.
What a profound experience it was to watch Snap! I am touched deeply. My sister was in a mental hospital and underwent electric shock therapy. She has always wanted to write about it but as yet has not had the courage. You are an inspiration.
Snap! is the true story of my own breakdown, institutionalization and road back to freedom as a sixteen year old girl. This story lay silent within me for almost forty years. This performance is a testament to the power of stories to heal and help us through the most difficult circumstances. May it be an inspiration to you to tell the secret story you have been holding inside of you.
