"It was fantastic- every time you switched character you transformed." -Oliver

"My grandmother immigrated from Ireland. She didn't have a job, she had to figure out how to deal with 8 kids. She's just very Irish and that was a big influence in my life. Its very different taking someone out of their culture and forcing them to assimilate into another one." -Laura

"Rayya's character was really interesting because it's easy from one perspective to say she's stuck. It's just her lifestyle and she's trying to be happy." -Devon

"I loved it all, especially the cooking part. Thats what my mom always says I need to do for my husband and I think, I need to learn how to do it for myself first." -Erica, Senior 

"The show was really great. Im African American from Chicago and it touched me that you're from the Bronx.

Hofstra University, NY


"I think it was really cool to see how throughout the entire play, you have the need to define yourself or find a definition through experiences but at the end you realize that the only real definition is you and who you are.

"I liked the change of pace and when the whole vibe of the show changed. When something serious happened, it was really touching. It was a defining moment." -Michael

Its comforting to see youre not the only person having an identity crisis. Its normal to want a different culture and to be a part of what everyone else is a part of." -Daisy

"I liked when you had the dialogue with you and your mother where you were trying to fit in more in the Bronx. I was only Jewish kid in my entire school district. So I really related to how you wanted to morph into everyone else. Well done!" -Sarah

"My favorite character was the Mehndi girl because even though she was very Indian,she was almost more urban." -Haley

Centre College, KY


"My mom is from Africa and my dad is from England Indian descent. Even though I wasn't raised in India, I could relate to the way you portrayed your parents, the way you had conflict with who you want tobe. I was raised in Western Kentucky around Caucasian people so I would typically try to be like them. There are always stereotypes of Indians I didn't know what to expect with the show and I loved it!" -Ioni, Junior

"I thought it was very entertaining. For our school, we usually have lectures where people just talk, so this was a nice change, to be engaged in the show and learn about cultural issues in a new way. When I came to Kentucky, it was one race and its kinda boring and there aren't different ways of thinking here, so just having someone come in and open different doors, its great." -Amber, Junior

"I enjoyed it, it was very funny. It talked about alot of different aspects of stereotypes but you didn't do it in a harsh or aggressive way. It was funny and subtle, and I liked that. My favorite part was the jump rope story." -Joshua, Sophomore

"My dad emigrated from England to NY when was 9 and I hear a lot about what his family went through and what he wanted me to have. The show was very touching. I also lost a friend that I went to school with and you think about the people you surround yourself with, you wonder how much you really do know, how much does the place you grow up in really affect you, help you or hinder you. My favorite character was your father because although he spoke less, he had a strong presence, he had strength." -Nicole, Senior

"The show spoke to me on an emotional level. Its really an inspiring story. It looks at all aspects of life, it goes past high school, it shows the process and it was beautiful. The suicide scene is so powerful and it was hard to watch but it was such a true moment." -Casey, Alum

"I really enjoyed watching the narrative and the dynamics of the dichotomy of being American and being Indian or being non-White and being American. Im an Anthropology major, studying different racial issues, and its very good for me to see a different archetype of racial issue. I got really into the Henna story with the good luck message." -Haley, Senior

"The show was really fun and funny. I came here from Haiti and I have Latino friends who I tried to be like too so I thought it was awesome." -Sarah, Senior

"I loved the show, I'm really big on diversity and I like hearing other people's perspectives when it comes to difficult situations. I had problems with somebody in school and I got into more trouble than they did so I related to your story." -Shomari, Freshman

"We all like to believe that this country is so accepting of diversity and peoples differences but deep down there's a lot of misunderstanding and education that needs to go on. Just the conversation will open people's eyes." -Rob

"I want to thank you. I'm Indian. Your family expectations, I go through the same thing. Ive been here for 12 years and I feel Im a foreigner when I go back. That experience, the way you shared it, it was truly remarkable." -Brijap

"I think you captured every emotion very well. I loved your mom cuz my mom is just like that." -Maggie

"Fantastic I could relate. My grandparents are Hungarian immigrants. Really understanding others cultures is ultimately how you want to treat patients, you want to be respectful so that you're not losing trust." -Jason

"I go to see a lot of shows but this was quite exceptional. I loved your mother. I laughed and teared up a few times." -Erin

"I've lived in the US but I've been raised in the American culture. Spanish people assume I speak Spanish and I dont. Its nice showing us that you can go back and find it because it is part of you." -Val
