Innovative, emotional, funny and well-written! Kirsten V. engages the audience and presents an emotional, roller coaster of a show in rapid-fire, non-linear fashion. Grabs your attention from the first moment and never lets you go! I'm hoping she will visit Slambovia.com to discover the Grand Slambovian's music of a similar mindset to her show. Last chance to see her show is 24 August, so...GO!
