NATIONAL REVIEWS for Alicia Hall Moran, Bess
L.A. Times - “Moran finds the truth of the character in her magnificent voice. “
S.F. Examiner - In addition to pitch-perfect, unshowy singing, she conveys a character that is human, believable and sympathetic.”
Dallas Morning News - “Moran is stunning in the part.”
L’Étoile - “As the licentious yet morally conflicted Bess, Alicia Hall Moran is a revelation; her tangy mezzo-soprano voice…technically able to handle all of Bess’s demanding music…background in jazz and pop gives her an edge.” (T. O’Dowd)
