One of the best shows that I have seen in a long time. This show was the complete package. It was outstanding. It was interesting. it was performed outstanding it was directed with love. The actors on stage gave you exactly what you came there for. The truth about the life of Miss Eartha Kitt. How beautiful she was. How talented she was. If you see one show see this one before she packs up her Talent in heads to Broadway. Bravo to the entire team.... full review
