Hi-Hat Hattie was a sentimental, one-dimensional piece of theater, but Sheryl Renee made it work. She's a fine actress, but it was her vocal abilities that transfixed us as she sang a mix of blues, funk and show music.

Her phrasing was sophisticated, and she could be funny, silkily seductive or downright tragic at will.
