Here's what she said about me, specifically. I've left out last names to protect the innocent.
Two newcomers, who are welcome and happy surprises, have joined OCCT. As one of the pretty girlfriends, PatL has a complex role: seductive and glamorous to the hilt, she is also serious about getting the bachelor to tie the knot with her, and so must be quick-witted without ever sacrificing her charm. PatL succeeds moment by difficult moment with unwavering aplomb.Seductive! Glamorous! Charm! Aplomb!
P.S. Remember the woman that I told you is stealing the show every night? Here's what was said about her:
As the mother, PatJ is hardly less than a bomb that bursts almost constantly with comic action. Neil Simon must have had a blast when he wrote her lines, and even he would double with laughter if he got to see PatJ deliver them or watch her stagger across the stage in deepest despair and pathos. She's absolutely priceless.She definitely nailed that one!
Still hoping to get some photos for you, but so far I haven't found anyone who's willing. Prayers and crossed fingers gratefully accepted!
