The nubile Sheila (the sassy and superb Deidre Goodwin) certainly needs no adjustments. It’s impossible to take your eyes off her; when Zach asks her to dance upstage, she does so grudgingly and then stops. “Sheila, do you know the combination?” Zach asks. She shoots him a look. “I knew it when I was in the front,” she says. Will or won’t Sheila be chosen? Believe me, it’s worth the price of admission to find out.
Deidre Goodwin has arms and legs so sinuous that octopuses are probably expressing underwater envy about them.
Deidre Goodwin is a lioness of sorts. She’s the kind of performer who is as fiercely protective and nurturing of her talent as Elsa was of her cubs in the 1966 sudser “Born Free.” With her long, muscular limbs and shrewd, darting eyes, she is always on the hunt for prey. Sometimes that takes the form of a man; other times it’s a musical number. Either way, she tears into whoever or whatever she’s doing with considerable intelligence and feline ferocity.
