Marble City Opera’s ‘Lily’ – Audrey Babcock Is Spellbinding in One-Woman Show



“Conceived, written, and performed by Babcock. . . Babcock was unequivocally spellbinding, both vocally and dramatically, as Lily, calling up both specters of darkness and moments of optimism with a voice that can range from raw, guttural despair to powerful clarity with perfect, seemingly effortless diction. Dramatically, Babcock was able to paint her smoky, dark character with a controlled sense of physical desperation, but also with expressions of tenacity that defines such survivors existing in down-in-the-gutter hardship. Babcock’s performance was also a feast of subtle facial communications and body language, certainly made possible by the intimate theatre space.”
