Vibrant and tremendously brave…”One Drop of Love” is an odyssey of love, of race and ultimately of redemption. . . Cox’s tale will break your heart even as it heals it.
Junot Díaz, Pulitzer Prize Winner, MacArthur “Genius” Fellow, Professor of Writing at MIT.

“One Drop of Love” not only provided a spectacular performance  by Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni, but was also one of the most socially important conversations the Fox has been able to help facilitate within our community…
– Allan Vella, President and CEO of the Fox Theatre, Atlanta, GA

Fanshen Cox’s “One Drop of Love” interweaves the intimacy of personal experience with the larger social and political changes redefining race, gender and the kinship in America…
Michele Elam, professor of English, Stanford University

Fanshen’s story is quite incredible, but it is her retelling of it that captures an audience… She is the kind of performer who will inspire people to embrace what makes them different and see it as a strength.
– Randall Arney, Artistic Director, Geffen Playhouse

“One Drop of Love” is funny, entertaining and moving.
– Kim Wayans, Actress: PariahIn Living Color; Writer/Performer: A Handsome Woman Retreats

“One Drop of Love” is beautiful and brave… In this sometimes searing, sometimes funny, and always smart play she shows us both the terrible things we do to those we love and a way forward to a better future.
– Paul Spickard, professor of history at University of California, Santa Barbara
