I was blown away by Lindsay’s performance in this one woman show. She commands the stage in a way that her talent and work seems effortless. Between the singing, laughing and tears, I appreciated Lindsay taking us on her journey and sharing pieces of her with us. She has quite a story, and it was delivered and portrayed so lovely in her solo performance. I saw this show last year at Fringe, and didn’t think it could get better, but she somehow never ceases to amaze me.
This show was so many things…hilarious, moving, inspiring and damn right fantastic. I LOVED it!! Lindsay is so talented.
I loved this show: beautiful, nuanced, joyful, and seemingly effortless storytelling.
I loved it!
A terrific show! Very funny, engaging, and heartfelt. You will leave with a smile on your face, guaranteed.
I really liked a lot of the musical numbers. Half narrative, half musical, all comedy. I also liked how personal it became. She shared her deepest fears and tragedies in life. But isn’t that what life’s about and how we overcome it?

I had a lot of fun. It’s really a blast. I was smiling and busted out laughing a few times.
A superb show; Lindsay Lucas-Bartlett gives a one-woman masterclass; and Trust Me I’m From Essex gets a sharp, funny revival. Capably directed by Director/Actor Lindsay Perry– it’s a must-see not only because it is an accomplished show, but because it’s an astonishing masterclass in acting- a marathon of a monologue that holds us in thrall.

What is wonderful about Lucas-Bartlett’s performance is, in part, her pacing. Her exceptional relaxation on stage is never at the expense of dramatic momentum. Lindsay’s background in improv comedy shines through her comedic songs which are not only hilariously entertaining, but also engagingly heartfelt.
