The singing dancers in Fosse have been
instructed to gaze out into the audience with
that familiar Fosse stare that says both only a
few instances in which an infectious
rush in the joy of performing gets past
the footlights.
 You feel it in…, of all
things,
the salacious, watch-me delight
that a young woman named Shannon
Lewis draws from a 1970's artifact
called "
I Gotcha," choreographed for Liza
Minnelli's 1973 television special.
BEN BRANTLEY, THE NEW YORK TIMES


Fans of Fosse -- the Broadway dance revue highlighting the varied output of
choreographer-director Bob Fosse -- will
undoubtedly want to
snatch up this cast
recording of the music. Shannon
Lewis's sultry "
I Gotcha"(from 1972's
Liza with a Z television special)
is one of the
disc's catchiest tunes.
JASON VERLINDE, AMAZON.COM


Fosse has shady men in Bowler hats, down at the heels hoofers, and long-legged good
time girls (like) Shannon Lewis.
TERRY TEACHOUT, TIME MAGAZINE


Fosse...boasts the added bonus of being entertaining. For this, we can thank...the
outrageous Shannon Lewis in "I
Gotcha," she thrashes, struts and
shimmies like Tina Turner
.

Thoroughly getting the jokes are a

as the King's dominatrix
wife Fastrada.
FRANK RIZZO, VARIETY


Shannon Lewis (as Fastrada) and James Royce Edwards (as Lewis) enjoyed mother-
son team.
Lewis cut a terrifically droll
figure in her slash-dance number,
"
Spread a Little Sunshine."

Shannon Lewis plays Fastrada, the evil
stepmother,
with just the right mix of
seductiveness, sleaze, and a strong
voice

THE LOOK OF LOVE
Original Broadway Cast
At one point, as Kevin Ceballo sings ''Yo Nunca
Spanish),
a leggy dancer, Shannon Lewis,
performs a tortuous ballet solo
,… some of the
cast members are gifted dancers
-- both Ms.
Lewis
and Desmond Richardson have ballet chops
--… also in a tribute to Bob Fosse,
a sex-kitten
number performed by Ms. Lewis
, Janine
LaManna and Rachelle Rak to ''
What's New Pussycat?''
BRUCE WEBER, THE NEW YORK TIMES


A few good moments do prevent The Look of Love from being entirely dreary…. Shannon Lewis's jaw-
droppingly sexy and sinewy dancing
transcends

In the brief roles of Vittorio Vidal and his tempestuous girlfriend Ursula, Paul
Schoeffler and
Shannon Lewis make
nice impressions.

quality that seemed to me mostly
missing when I saw the original New

Broadway revival
on which this tour was
based…The line is very fine here, in so many
ways…
in the deceptively difficult role
of sexy, self-obfuscating Sheila,
Shannon Lewis is delicious.
CHRIS JONES, CHICAGO TRIBUNE


In the showy roles of jaded, flirtatious Sheila and surgically enhanced Val, Shannon
Lewis
and Mindy Dougherty pull off their
requisite big moments.
PETER MARKS, WASHINGTON POST


Of the notable performances, I’ll highlight the playfully adorable and vampish
Shelia, portrayed by Shannon Lewis.
She
oozed over-the-top sexuality in her
attempt to connect with the director,
only to stop “performing” and reveal
her youthful escape into dance
to
replace the father that was never there.
THE D.C. TRAVELLER


Standouts include ... As the divalicious purring cougar Sheila, Shannon Lewis is
a stunner
whose aggressive sexuality
barely masks the panic of turning 30 in a
career that considers anything over 25 or so
geriatric.
CATEY SULLIVAN, THE CHICAGO

Sheila (Shannon Lewis), a tart-

Another huge plus was Shannon

extension as she moves gracefully
across a stage, presents a sexy

and working

As 172-year-old temptress Lola, red-haired Shannon Lewis is brassy, sassy and a

It is hard for anyone to look away
from Shannon Lewis as she
practically glides into that bar, with
every eye on her. She has the power,
accepting or rejecting dance requests
with a simple and often disdainful nod
of her head.  Lewis makes you wish
you could dance along to the swing
steps that keep this bar crowd
hopping.
JAY HANDELMAN, HERALD-TRIBUNE


Michael Wiley wants to dance--desperately--especially after the knockout Girl in the
Yellow Dress (Shannon Lewis, who
nails the part)
makes an appearance.
KAY KIPLING, SARASOTA MAGAZINE


...the musical goes into a spin of tantalizing swing dancing galore where the men in the
club vie for the affection of the Girl in the
Yellow Dress...
Lewis is dashing on
stage, bringing a distinctive poise to
the role.
