“Leigh-Anne Kehler never disappoints. A natural story spinner, she uses all of her body… Every movement and moment has clear and definite purpose and meaning.”

“She had the audience in the palm of her hand eliciting actual sighs and gasps and whispers of “Isn’t she wonderful!” throughout the production.”
