"The standout for me was Paola Hernandez as the sexy but doomed Mimi Marquez. Ms. Hernandez was born and raised in Puerto Rico and is an alumna of Circle in the Square Theater School in NYC. This young woman can SING and brought the perfect amount of stage presence to the role; she looked pretty amazing in those costumes as well."
