Among the lovable, very funny actors in prominent roles are...Mychal Phillips as Erma, who has just the right raucous voice and strut for her role.
THE NEW YORK TIMES
The standout performance of the night is Phillips' Lina who steals every scene she's in with the Bambi-like batting of her massive false eyelashes and perfect comic timing. Even though she's the villain in the story, her performance is so delightful it almost makes you want to root for her.
Mychal Phillips is dandy- brash, saucy, and unabashedly mischievous.
Other standouts are Mychal Phillips as the sex-obsessed Erma...
In the end, love wins out... and Moonface Martin’s adorable moll, Erma (Mychal Phillips) gets one, two or maybe six sailors.
she turns vocal straw into gold in a wonderfully goofy number dubbed “What’s Wrong with Me?” And the way Phillips handles her comeuppance, which audiences can discover for themselves, was lip-licking delicious.
...Mychal Phillips is adorable.
My favorite song of the night was `BuddyBeware´, during which Mychal Phillips, as the obligatory
gangster´s moll, and the chorus of sailors stop the show.
DC THEATRE SCENE
Philips is a spitfire and is the perfect accompaniment to Moonface Martin. Brining her own bright moments, she shines during her song and dance routine in ´Buddie, Beware.'
...the man-crazy sidekick Erma, played by the wonderful Mychal Phillips.
Gangster-sidekick Erma, played commendably well by Mychal Phillips, adds a healthy dose of comedy to the show and stands out with her sensual salute to bluntness with the song ´Buddy Beware.´
Stand out performances include Mychal Phillips' opportunistic Erma...
