Another crowd and personal favorite was Jennyanydots, whose tap number was just plain fun and left a smile on my face long after her shoes stopped tapping. Add in her strong vocal chops and it's a home run casting choice. The applause after her number, "The Old Gumbie Cat," was only exceeded by the wild applause for Tayler Harris's rendition of "Memory."

Michelle E. Carter taps her way into our hearts as Jennyanydots. Throughout the show, it is hard not to be drawn to her thanks to her expressive face, fluid dance moves and sparkly vocals. “The Old Gumbie Cat” is a nod to everything we love about a big splashy classic tap number.

I was utterly enchanted by the sparkle and verve emanating from Michelle E. Carter in her portrayal of Jennyanydots. Carter draws the eye throughout the production with her expressiveness and sass even after wowing the house with an early tap feature. What a gem.

The first contender is humorous Jennyanydots (a.k.a. the Old Gumbie Cat), gleefully portrayed by Michelle E. Carter. Tapping up a storm in bright orange fringe (original costumer John Napier’s designs remain first-rate), Carter’s radiance is an early tone-setting highlight.

On the endlessly talented stage, scene stealers include tap-dancing tornado Michelle E. Carter as Jennyanydots.

The dance numbers were incredible and diverse...One of my favorites was “The Old Gumbie Cat,” featuring Michelle E. Carter, a tap-dancing wonder, as Jennyanydots.
