One Mo’ Time

“Julia Breanetta Simpson” as the skinny, man-stealing Thelma gives Bertha a run for her money throughout. She’s coy, bitchy and sweet in turn, desperately trying to be the star of a show with a really BIG star already.”

by Patricia Donovan
Buffalo, NY

“Julia Breanetta Simpson played a wonderfully funny and well-voiced Thelma, one of Papa Du’s love-interests and a sparring partner for Big Bertha.

Ain’t Misbehavin’

“Julia Simpson is a wisp of a thing who moves about the stage with the litheness of a cat. She flirts with the men, flaunts her tiny figure in front of Hill and Young and presents a pleasant contrast in style to the show.”
