SHARI BARRETT broadway world certified reviewer June 08, 2022
Certainly almost everyone must know something about Elizabeth Taylor, either for her beauty, childhood to adult movie star roles, her many marriages and children, extravagant lifestyle, love of expensive jewels, and ultimately her stand on fighting HIV/AIDS. But Kayla Boye takes us inside the woman who lived through it all and had a wonderful time enjoying herself, especially when a bottle of champagne was involved. I know I learned more about Elizabeth, including she hated to be called Liz, thanks to Kayla's magnificent portrayal and extensive research into the violet-eyed beauty's life. ... full review

ELI HANS certified reviewer June 10, 2022
Wow! This performance is stunning at every level. The nuanced speech pattern of the time, Kayla’s gorgeous embodiment of Elizabeth, and it’s truly beautifully well written. The set is simple yet classy, and from the moment she enters, we are magically transported to the past, watching Elizabeth Taylor, sharing intimate aspects of her life. I was absolutely mesmerized from beginning to end. Brava Kayla! A truly stellar show and performance. Could see it again!... full review

What a beautiful actress Kayla Boye is. I love that she chose to portray Elizabeth Taylor since she does indeed resemble her. I was very impressed by the elegant set, her fabulous black dress and gorgeous hair. Her voice and cadence as Elizabeth Taylor was genuine as she tells the story of life to the figure writing her biography. I thought it was informative and well written. As another reviewer wrote, yes, this show is extremely polished. She knows exactly when to do what and no moves are wasted. Her expressions all stem from organic places and she's very elegant always. ... full review

Lovely job. She did a great job of channeling Elizabeth shifting between her vulnerability and her star power. Swept us up in the story. Some interesting tidbits that we didn't know. Very authentic.... full review

SHELLEY COOPER certified reviewer June 08, 2022
One of the best, if not the best, solo show I have seen at the festival. Her performance is polished, confident, and yet still so many honest moments of vulnerability that caught me by surprise….in a good way. Her show is such a treat for us! There were moments I forgot I was at a performance and thought I was actually sitting in Elizabeth Taylor’s hotel room. ... full review
AARON STILES certified reviewer June 08, 2022
The attractive peer of constant interruption in Elizabeth’s life as a rule of thumb materializes in the mind from this prompt. The demand of the constantly chiming rotary phone is her symphony: a brigade of suitors and dealmakers. The battle with it within Kayla Boye demonstrates a level of unravel that comes with her reassessments of what is truly important to her, with tactful, jocular insights into her prurient situational matrix. ... full review
