A very remarkable production. Everything from the staging, to the writing, to the music, to the Acting was superb. This show is ready for Broadway. Janelle simply becomes Eartha Kitt and it’s the greatest thing I’ve ever seen at Hollywood Fringe.... full review

I have gone to a few Fringe Festival shows and "I WANNA BE EVIL: THE EARTHA KITT STORY" is by far the best I've seen to day. I really hope it becomes part of the Fringe Encore series so more people can catch it. ... full review

From her first appearance from the top of the stairs until the closing credits, Jenelle Lynn Randall embodies Eartha Kitt persona in such an electrifying way that I had to pinch myself to remind me I was watching a Fringe show rather than the multifaceted and outspoken artist that “made Lady Byrd cry” with her wit, her charm and her unspoiled gender. A tour de force in every way, Eartha Kitt will have you gagging but also reflecting on political and social issues that still exist in today, like they did in the 60’s and 70’s.... full review
PAUL JEROME certified reviewer June 17, 2019
This was a FIRST RATE production! Jenelle Randall gives a masterful performance and embodies the soul of Eartha Kitt! Her voice is second to none and she takes you on an emotional journey that leaves you wanting MORE! The direction by Yvans Joudain was also skillfuly crafted. This show deserves several encores!!!... full review
