"Judith Black is the bravest, wildest, most astonishing storyteller anywhere. Not only is she a great performer, but she also writes her own material, haunting story theater that is profound, and hilarious at the same time. She is, in every meaning of the word, an original, and she is, without a doubt, the best."
