Here is the latest review from the 2019 October Off-Broadway run
Her journey on stage can barely be called "acting" because of how genuine it is - as though a light emanates from her very soul to make both her and her performance glow. Watching Valerie David perform The Pink Hulk: One Woman's Journey to Find the Superhero Within is something so rare and so marvelous; it is the most powerful and poignant two hours I have ever spent at a theater. Her performance is life changing...and we should all be a little grateful that there are people like Valerie David to lighten the way...
Broadway World, Oct 13, 2019, NYC
Here is the full Broadway World Review
"Valerie David, who has the talent of a Broadway star, decided to write this show to share her experiences and empower those facing adversity in life. The Pink Hulk began touring the country in 2016 and Valerie David began accumulating awards for this extraordinarily moving, candid, and insightful show. The Pink Hulk is a 60-minute experience you will not soon forget."
--Applause! Applause! New York City
"There is clearly nothing about Valerie that isn't exceptional. The Pink Hulk is a triumph of the one-woman show format. The Pink Hulk is the apogee of cancer narratives; the zenith, the apex. You cant get much better than this."
--DC Metro Theater Arts
