(Debbie) Pappas demonstrates the value of experience with a performance that is well-paced and builds to a rewarding crescendo. MusicalFare has provided a showcase for her magnetic allure and remarkable talent. The total effect is wunderbar.
Debbie Pappas is one experienced actress and chanteuse and inhabits the character of Linda Lee without a trace of theatrical artifice. The way that Pappas moves around the set, sits, stands, and talks just dripped with Hollywood glamour.
In brief: It’s de-lovely. That made-up contraction by the inimitable Cole Porter is the perfect way to describe (the show). Debbie Pappas gracefully commands the stunning set with her elegant portrayal...But oh it’s the music, whimsical (and sometimes plaintive) words, and her magnificent voice that make this experience so special.
