The brilliant comedienne/singer/impressionist has taken the resort by storm with her opening last week in the dynamite new production, Broadway Ballyhoo! A celebration of showtunes and stars, produced and directed by Larry Alford.
Ms Michaels is on and off stage throughout the 90 minute production. She exhibits her amazing ear with a rendition of "Embracable You" as sung by Sarah Vaughan, Lena Horne, Eartha Kitt and Billie Holliday. Her wicked interpretation of "Cinderella" is sidesplitting. Michaels is then back in her own superb voice with an electrifying "I Am What I Am" which of course leads into a full company kickline to The Best Of Times. By now the audience is on it's feet cheering!Ellen Burke

For the next three weeks anyone seeking to type-cast the story of Cinderella had best steer clear of Harrah's. It is there that Joan Rivers is appearing as the evil stepmother, Roseanne and Cher as the wicked stepsisters, Bette Midler as Cinderella, Dr. Ruth as the Fairy Godmother and if our notes are to be believed, Jackie Mason as Prince Charming.
Add only that all six parts are enacted by the same person, the gifted Marilyn Michaels- and that way madness lies.
impressionists go, Michaels has an endless arsenal. Want to meet the young
Katharine Hepburn? Marilyn does it, the elder Hepburn 50 years later?
She does that too!
