Busy working off-Broadway, after a post-"Music Man" rest and some recent short-term appearances, it appears that Becca is back full-force.

Her new CD out in about two months as a long-awaited follow-up to her Cole Porter CD from several years ago. Good to have her back.

Love Rebecca! I've seen her as Christine, (POTO), Magnolia, (Show Boat) and Maria, (Sound OM.) Dynomite voice and stage presense!

....I can honestly say that I haven't a clue what people see in her. Nice voice but a blank piece of paper on stage.

I beleive it was about '94 with Mark Jacoby. Don't have my playbill handy, so don't quote me on the year.

I honestly thought her Maria(SOM) was one of the best. Critics loved her too.

Mixed review for her off-Broadway play "Can't Let Go" in Newsday...calls it a "refreshingly lightweight treat to kick off the summer"...after some quibbling over some of the lack of characterizations.

Says "Luker, clearly enjoying playing the straight woman surrounded by three very intense co-workers, has some fun with Beth's perpetual dismay, and has perfected a harried hunch over her keyboard. She also nicely underplays the character's big monologue, which, coming toward the end of the play's 75-minute running time, is so out of left field that we can't help but buy it."

Nice photo of her run with the review.
