Miss Andrews/ Bird Woman
Dutch Apple Dinner Theater
Directed by Ryan Gibbs
Musical Direction by JP Meyer
Choreography by Samantha Hewes Cramer
'The powerfully voiced Allison Maldonado does triple duty as an ensemble member, a Vampira of a nasty nanny, and the sweet-faced Bird Woman who reminds Jane and Michael that there are other ways to invest one’s money than in a bank (“Feed the Birds.”)
Maldonado is hilariously terrifying as black-feather-clad nanny Miss Andrew, whose child-rearing philosophy is summed up in her operatic “Brimstone and Treacle,” and whose remembered presence in Mr. Banks’ childhood allows the audience to understand this cold banker a little better.'
