Shelley - what a great privilege to be in the audience last night for the opening of your one woman show. Bold and daring, gritty yet vulnerable, you had me in the palm of your hand from the opening scene! How blessed we are to have a talent like you in Hamilton to hold our hand and take us on a journey of survival through laughter, tears and brilliant story telling - you are the REAL deal Shelley Marshall, an uber talent with the heart of a lion - thank you for a great night of entertainment!

I am still in awe of the show we saw last night. Shelley Marshall was so brilliant! It really is very emotional to watch her story come to life. But the fact it could be so bloody funny as well!?... Seriously, I feel empowered through her journey. Thank you for telling your story so well!
Had the best time ever last night at Shelley Marshall's Hold Mommy's Cigarette. What an emotional romp, from heart wrenching to gut laughing to thought provoking and poignant. Loved every delicious second.
Over the top....beyond funny...stirring....heart opening....thank you thank you Shelley!!
Powerful night !!!!!........ Shelley Marshalltold a story of fear and hopelessness , with truth and laughter ..there is always hope " We become powerful in the face of our fears...
Raw and sweet, funny and heartbreaking all at once. Hard to achieve but you sure nailed it. Amazing to see someone (literally) strip themselves down in front of an audience. Loved the sound track, the set, the wardrobe...loved it all AND the best compliment (genuine) of all, I can't stop thinking about it. Live through this indeed.xxx
