Transcript SEPT. 23, 1983 / MONTROSE VOICE 23 Unfortunately, Polly Maclntyre, as the neurotic writer, plays the awkward young lady rather awkwardly, letting the audience know she is about to make a blunder just before she makes one. Christopher Boyer, as the young publisher, is suave and sure, with a dash of charm; a perfect contrast to the awkward writer. Ray Simmons smart gourmet kitchen/ dining room set is a compliment to the production. Main Street Theater deserves credit with this season opener for being a quality company not afraid to risk new scripts. It's a shame that The Art of Dining is not the epicurean evening one might hope for. □ Penny Hamilton at Rascals By Jon Cheetwood Rascals should be commended for their efforts to bring new blood to Houston's cabaret circuit. Thank you, Rascals, in particular for your latest fresh find. Penny Hamilton is irresistible. The vocalist/actress is an ample-bodied beautiful girl gifted with a "10" personality, as well as a voice. I've seen audience rapport before, but rarely has it had such a natural cadence and honest ring as it does in Ms. Hamilton's hands. Her act is brimming with humor. She described her ensemble at one point as "the WASP version of Ma hagony" and her body as "USDA Choice." And it is her custom to take a picture of her audiences for her mother, but when the flash failed opening night and she couldn't take our picture, we were informed that now we couldn't possibly "be girlfriends and write each other." She's on top of her patter with ad-libs as clever as the prepared material. I also had the feeling she could chew up a heckler and spit out one-liners, leaving nothing but a moronic shell in his place. Don't get me wrong—she's not tough— just sharp as a tack and obviously very comfortable with herself. Humor also abounds in many of her songs, such as "I'll Take L.A." and "Rose of Washington Square." Her Judy Garland medley is hysterical! Penny's voice has no tricks or gimmicks. It's a straight forward damn good voice, singing the songs you want to hear. She can laugh, cry, swing or just plain belt. She's picked some of the best of nostalgia, with numbers like "You'll Never Know How Much I Love You," "Undecided Now," "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" and such a heart-felt version of "Just My Bill" that it evokes the swallowing-so-you-don't-cry effect from the audience. I got the feeling throughout the show that this woman would make a brilliant actress. This was most evident with her dramatics in "On the Boulevard." Goodness. Now that's a number you'll take home with you! Ms. Hamilton is one performer who is able to sing and display her wit. She's one performer I certainly want to see again. She's a joy!
