Mamma Mia


Dance of the Holy Ghosts by Marcus Gardley - Yale Rep

"But the encounter stirs something. Oscar begins to see the ghosts of his wife, Viola (Harriett D. Foy); his daughter, Darlene (La Tonya Borsay), and Marcus, when he was a squirmy boy of 10. Reflection breeds insight. Ms. Foy is voluptuous and sensual as the ghost of the young Viola, but she can never top her entrance as another character: the self-possessed child Tanisha Taylor, jumping rope and singing about her parents' strange behavior at church."

Crowns by Regina Taylor

"And in their headwear, striped, veiled or brightly colored, with broad, jauntily angled or even removable brims, adorned by white roses or peacock feathers (''I look for a hat with the right amount of stuff on it''), they look just gorgeous. Their voices share an earthy power. Ms. Foy (someone should write a show for her) has an especially unusual vocal tone, a kind of melodic lowing that gives her voice the fetching swagger to match her stage presence."

"The show would not be anywhere nearly so successful, however, were it not for Harriett D. Foy, who plays Big Sweet, the combative, strong-hearted woman who is the unofficial mayor and sheriff of the sawmill camp. She is Lonnie's woman, and she is willing to use any method of intimidation to ensure that stays the case (though Lonnie has his doubts); she defends everything that belongs to her with the same vehemence. Indeed, the play opens with her knocking the tar out of the good-for-nothing Nunkie (Rudy Roberson), who evidently swindled Lonnie out of six dollars. Ms. Foy's stocky build and unusual, richly textured singing voice give Big Sweet a swagger that can both impersonate manliness and effect a salty femininity. Hers is a large, earthy, bold and highly engaging performance in a terrific woman's role."

- Bruce Weber, 4/25/02
