BROADWAY WORLD: "PHOEBE LEGERE IS A DYNAMO!"




"Blessed with a swinging croon as dynamic as Judy Garland's, magnetic intensity that recalls Carol Channing, and a swaggering exuberance that would wow Ethel Merman, Phoebe Legere's talent is the sort that uplifts sinking ships.

"Legere has outdone herself in crafting infectious tunes that set the audience bopping with delight. As a tunesmith she is Cole Porter's feminine flipside.

"Legere's delivery is of the sort that Fred Astaire used to sell a song: dashing execution wedded to precise elocution. When impersonating her lovers and their hijinks - notably Marlene Dietrich and Tallulah Bankhead - Legere shows a madcap brilliance for salty comedy that would make SNL or MAD TV blush."
