Parnicky does a bang-up job as the shy lover. On the Kellogg-Friedman love ballads her voice is stellar. Parnicky demands attention whenever she’s on stage, and has comic chops she shows off in a mirror sequence with Molina that neatly recalls the unforgettable one Lucille Ball and Harpo Marx executed on I Love Lucy back in that day. This one has its memorable qualities as well.

When Sarah Parnicky first sings, she offers up a crisp, clear sound that, while supported by wonderful musicians, sounds almost a capella in its glassy fragility.
