A CRITIC REMINISCES
There’s one thing to be said for charisma – either you have it or you don’t. Jan Sandwich has it, so much of it that surrounded by a group as definitively charismatic as the Barnstormers at the Windmill Dinner Theater, she managed to stand out from the crowd.
Perhaps it was the smile – it was infectious, contagious, whatever word you can think of that explains how it captured and kept the attention. Maybe it was her talent – she was a marvelous actress, a very good singer and a more than adequate dancer. Almost certainly it was her comedic timing – when the material supported her, she could lay the house in the aisles; even when it didn’t, she made us laugh.
