What I liked

With a live band and singing top hits like “C’est Si Bon,” " Let’s Do It," and, of course, “I Wanna Be Evil,” and more, Randall makes gentle use of the famous Cat Woman’s trilling purr, while presenting Kitt’s best and most tragic historical aspects of her life in interview-style story. I should note here that there are no extensions and no idea of when the show might return. However, this show was sold out every night and with good reason. If you find it, see it!

C’est Si Bon!

What I didn't like

It could definitely be longer. Definitely.

My overall impression

This is an astonishing show from start to finish! Jenelle Randall’s Eartha Kitt is on target both in interview vocal inflection, tone, and quality, as well as in her song vocals.
