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"...

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.

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
