Twitter Capsule: Jackie Monahan has inspired comic timing and evident improv talents. Hope she goes far. Otherwise? Limp. Tacky. Long.

VOR:   Improv-heavy lesbian slapstick is a rare bird. Festival audience proved there's an eager audience for it, and there's not a "crossover" bone in its body. So, points for distinctiveness.
