"Jessica Vann, who plays Laila, is the empathetic saleswoman at a shop that specializes in sensuous bath bombs and salts. In the short amount of time that Ms. Vann, a veteran of Porchlight’s Jeff-recommended “Billy Elliot: The Musical,” shares the stage with The Writer, we come to know a young woman who’s willing to go the extra mile. Sensing the trauma this young man is experiencing, Laila delivers her own version of love, in a performance that resonates long after the final curtain."
