What I liked

I was so impressed with the professionalism in this tiny space. Using actor Darrell Philip to portray multiple characters made the story flow so well. Smart writing and directing! Jenelle Randall was phenomenal in bringing Eartha’s often emotional story to life. As nice as it would be to leave out the difficulty of her childhood, understanding some of the emotional and physical struggles really showed us what made Eartha sizzle. And Jenelle sizzles!! Funny, edgy and sexy, and not to mention that singing voice! Throw in the amazing musical director, Ron Barnett, and you have a hit! Catch this when you can!

What I didn't like

I have nothing to add other than I can’t wait to see it blossom into a large-scale production!!

My overall impression

Jenelle Lynn Randall fully embraces Eartha Kitt…the look, the voice, the attitude!
