Leslie Uggams


It’s been quite a while since the Mitch Miller days, but she still has the ingenuous glow. Only now it’s tempered by show-biz sophistication. She has a huge repertoire from which to draw, but it would be great if she sings at least one or two tunes from the Jule Styne-Betty Comden-Adolph Green Hallelujah, Baby! for which she won a Tony. She’s also shown up as an August Wilson player but probably won’t do anything from that canon.
