Seven Angels Theatre, Waterbury: As soon as actress Stephanie Zimbalist, best known for her role in Remington Steele, stepped onto the Seven Angels stage in Waterbury, she was welcomed with an enthusiastic round of applause.
Throughout the performance, the audience followed her every step and word. They took in her brilliantly colorful costumes, her rolled and pinned-up hair skirting the back of her neck. What no one expected was that Zimbalist, playing opera diva Raquel DeAngelis could actually sing opera. She does and she sings very well. She doesn’t sing much, just snippets here and there, but she sings enough to let us know that she has a good set of pipes. Zimbalist looked great, performed well, won over the audience, and earned more rousing applause at intermission and final curtain.
