Publisher's Summary

Taking Flight is a deeply compelling, humorous, and truly moving work that brings to the stage a mystical and poignant tale of a friendship tested by tragedy, and of the resilience of the human heart.


Audible Editor Reviews

To write a one-woman show focusing on the tragedy of 9/11 that is filled with vivid, sexy, life-affirming observations; penetrating humor; and powerful emotions would be quite a challenge. The multitalented, multivoiced Adriana Sevan is up to the task. Using music, sound effects, and her own Latin-American and New York City roots, Sevan tells the heart-wrenching story of finding her severely injured best friend, Rhonda, in a downtown hospital in intensive care on the brutal evening of 9/11. It's a long, slow recovery for them both, and Adriana learns that lasting friendship and life after 9/11 have to be met with huge doses of honesty and heart. An outstanding performance.

AWFUL but short

What would have made Taking Flight better?

Someone less annoying reading this miserable tale. What a depressing and unsustainable tale.

What could Adriana Sevan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not talk! She is very annoying and her "Characters" made me want to throw my phone out of my car on the ride home.

Would you be willing to try another one of Adriana Sevan’s performances?

Never, I'll save my money and buy literally anything else. Would not recommend.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

At least it was short.

Any additional comments?
