“Patter is minimal, illustrative and effective. Anecdotes fit. Warmth is palpable. Sullivan’s delivery is silky, but strong, stylish and cooool. A hint of stage whisper and the slightest growl immediately evokes Lee, but make no mistake, this is not an imitative show, it’s an interpretive one. She’s almost motionless in her poise, focused on the truth of each song. When her arm rises it’s as though thoughts need to expand. “Hey There” you with the stars in your eyes (Richard Adler/Jerry Ross), filled with looping, sustained notes, intoxicates. Completely original. Arrangements are impeccable. Though the songs are sheer Lee, Sullivan deftly applies her own stamp. Sullivan is in command, and having a helluva time.”
