"One of Broadway's biggest, brightest semi-stars"

That's SHERIE RENE SCOTT. She's doing an autobiographical show at 2st Stage called Everyday Rapture. It's a quirky, self-depricating and sweet journey through her Mennonite childhood and roads traveled while trying to decide between Jesus and Judy Garland on the way to Manhattan and a Broadway career.

She has to ask WWJD - that's what would Judy do? She knocks the songs out of the park - my favorite was a slow rendition of Judy Garland's On The Atchison, Topeka And The Santa Fe (from The Harvey Girls!) There's magic in the act too - real magic tricks as well as a magical feeling as she comes to terms with life.

Everyday Rapture runs at 2econd Stage until May 31st.
