Taylor is a captivating performer for so many reasons, and in this play, her commitment to telling her truth was both heartbreaking and endearing. The Odds are Good But the Goods are Odd doesn't tiptoe around its central topics that are so frequently glazed over, but instead runs through them at full speed and with conviction, sharing earnestly with the audience the cuts and bruises gathered along the way. Sincere, full of heart, and remarkably funny - this show is not to be missed!
