Praise for Michael LaMasa's portrayal of Dorothy Zbornak


"Foremost among [the cast] is LaMasa, whose portrayal of Bea Arthur is so on point, it's spooky. Not only is his voice pitched to an Arthurian octave, but he precisely re-creates her diction, timing, and extra-dry delivery. Close your eyes and you might think she's risen from the dead."

"As the sardonic, barrel-voiced Dorothy, Michael LaMasa is the standout of the bunch, nailing Ms. Zbornak’s razor-sharp tongue."


-Naveen Kumar, Towerload

"LaMasa is Bea Arthur incarnate from the moment he makes his entrance as Dorothy.  With a bold, sarcastic tone and zinging one-liners, he delivers a superb performance with truly dry wit and an underlying softness, quickly becoming a crowd favorite."


-Dianne Gebauer, NY Theatre Guide

"Michael LaMasa has mastered Dorothy's chortle-inducing side-eye and tut-tut schoolmarm mannerisms as filtered through felt, and brings to bear a voice that so echoes with Beatrice Arthur's distinctive basso profundo, you'll swear at times it's her onstage... "


-Matthew Murray, Talkin' Broadway

"Michael LaMasa treated Bea Arthur’s signature creation with grace and dignity."
