"Nesha is a gifted storyteller. She plays each part of herself with a grace and simplicity that connects to her audience with immediacy and depth. As she travels through her life the characters grow, the layers of herself cleverly building into the women she has become.
She has found a really beautiful way to tell her own story. So often one person shows can feel too long, or overly dramatic, but “Healing: After The Tragedy” is just about perfect. It strikes a wonderful balance between the difficulties and the triumphs. The lightness of Nesha’s heart is inspiring and infectious and her story significant and soulfully told." - NOHO ARTS DISTRICT REVIEW
"I was amazed at the creativity and professionalism of this solo act performance by Nesha. Time flew by as I was totally engaged in her life story: playful, intrigued, emotional and finally the victory lap. Did not want it to end as Nesha made all the characters come to life. The statics in the video background and family pictures were perfect for her story. Can not wait to see what the future holds for this young yet mature performer, it is a MUST see!" - Phyllis Williams

She is so interesting and fun to watch, I couldn’t take my eyes off of her! Her story and struggles are touching and inspiring!

Although her story is her own, every aspect is relatable to everyone. Rise above.
The images on the screen in between left time to reflect on the previous scene. Nesha seamlessly flows between different characters, at times sad, at times humorous, at times bittersweet – but overall uplifting and hopeful. Nesha is the bomb." - KATE SEGNALLA (2018 Hollywood Fringe Festival Audience member)
Nesha is a natural, authentic actress. It never feels like she’s “putting on” characters – she just becomes them, to the point where we really feel we know them.

A solid solo show that not only sheds light on the shocking statistics of what happens to kids after they lose a parent in a tragedy, but also shows what it takes to overcome it and that’s its possible to beat the odds. Nesha Wonderland is a powerful presence with a wide range, playing multiple characters (and ages) with passion and conviction. If you like solo shows, this one’s for you!" -
A powerful debut from Nesha about pain, self-discovery, and love. Her story is unique and her one-woman performance lends itself to the intimacy of this autobiographical piece. Emotional at times and humorous at others, Nesha’s personal touch makes her message a relatable and inspiring one. You’ll leave with a smile on your face and refreshed spirit; don’t miss out on this worthwhile experience!" - SHAINDI S (College Student / 2018 Hollywood Fringe Festival Audience member)
I liked the way the story was told, I liked how Nesha dives into different periods of her life. Many of us can relate to toxic relationships, some of us to loosing a parent as well. Sadly, not everyone comes back from it so it’s really moving and great to see Nesha’s rebirth towards the end of the play!" - KATT BALSAN (WRITER/ AWARD NOMINATED PERFORMER 2018 Hollywood Fringe Festival Audience member)
