Saw this last Sunday and really enjoyed it. It's a unique and personal show that's funny, honest, and moving. Pitts converses directly with the audience at times, making you feel like you're part of the show (at a safe distance of course), and the use of props, slides, and sound effects help make it a highly effective piece of live theater.

Do note, though, that in-person performances end Sunday, August 29, while you can stream it online from August 27-September 5.
