My overall impression

Carolann Valentino is a full, dynamic, original package of pure theatrical talent! This gal can do anything. She has a fabulous voice, perfect comedic timing, terrific acting ability and the heart to make you believe each and every character she creates on the stage. I loved all of her female and male characters but her Jersey gal was hysterical. What I want to know is where are the big suits from B’way and why haven’t they given this woman a shot to bring her tremendous talent to their stage?

“Burnt at the Steak” should definitely be on the stage of The Great White Way. The show is original, funny and has wonderful songs that compliment the story line from beginning to end. Ms. Valentino grabs you by the mozzerella balls as soon as she appears on stage and never let’s go; the rest of the 70 minute ride is extremely entertaining. Her energy level, voice and characters never lose steam….this is one terrific show, well-written and fabulously performed. Congratulations, Carolann – you are an Italian gem and tell your mother, “Donna sees you on Broadway!”
