Star of stage and screen, dramatic actress Linda Purl accompanied by musical director, Tedd Firth will be making her Feinstein's debut on Jan. 26 & 27th. Amongst the landscape of today's performers, Miss Purl?s surprising vocal agility and captivating presence is a standout. Her significant dramatic skills are evident in the presentation of each song, Lerner and Lowe's "Wouldn't It Be Lovely" is sung with a rare combination of lyrical depth and lithe clarity. Linda Purl is currently known from her recurring roles on hit shows The Office and Lie to Meand perhaps better known for the many damsels-in-distress she has played in over forty "Movies of the Week". She playfully sings a satirical song about these women. A highlight of the evening is certain to be Miss Purl's haunting rendition of "I'll Be Seeing You/I See Your Face", as it usually captivates the room into a silence so hushed that one could literally hear a pin drop, not leaving a dry eye in the house, as is the case when she sings the Etta James hit "At Last". In closing, "Come Rain or Come Shine", the signature piece of the show's title, Purl's voice rises in full throttle to a powerful crescendo, making one feel as if they are hearing the standard for the very first time. Linda Purl is a sultry singer who is able to paint a picture with each song. Purl is on her way to becoming a major player on the Cabaret scene.
