“Another Opening, Another Show”

"Nyla Watson has a beautiful face, deep, rich voice and a personality to match. 

She is outstanding as Carlotta Campion, a former showgirl turned TV star whose torch song, “I’m Still Here,” is a tale of adaptation and survival."

"In a photo finish, the best performance may be

from Nyla Watson as the witch.

You can’t take your eyes off this woman and

her graceful movements and exquisite storytelling.

Iowa's QC TIMES:

"Watson, of powerful voice and imposing presence, controls the stage when she is belting!  She had some wonderful comic asides that added needed light moments to the heavy theme."
