 Tanica Psalmist – ‘Illusions of Liberty’ is a heartfelt one woman show, featuring a live cello player whose ambience brought an intensifying effect” “The play is a journey of a Black woman living in a biased society with a chronic illness and the feelings associated” “Illusions of Liberty is informative, transparent, and resonating for many who can relate or who know of someone who can… as well as what strength, courage and perseverance, and freedom truly looks like beyond the surface”. Five Stars *****"

 Illusions of Liberty, partly autobiographical, does not ask for pity but instead for understanding and empathy."

 I just want to say CONGRATULATIONS. I watched it. I LOVED it. Everything about it. The story, the script, the acting, the music, the production itself -- it was just perfect. It was so real and compelling, taking on huge issues without being "in your face." It said so much, but was also damn good entertainment. I laughed and I cried. Wow, I felt my own journey so hard in this. Thank you for making this. Thank you for sharing. I look forward to all you make in the future. I'm definitely a fan."
