Smart Blonde

Yetta Cohn is portrayed with benevolent toughness by Andrea Bianchi, who is also highly amusing as the writer and actress Ruth Gordon.

New York Times

Smart Blonde

Bianchi delivering particularly amusing vocal impressions of Ruth Gordon, Ethel Barrymore, and Marilyn Monroe among others.

Smart Blonde

Bianchi’s Ruth Gordon is worth the price of admission. It provides a witty comic highpoint of the evening.

Smart Blonde

Ms. Bianchi’s Ruth Gordon, Ethel Barrymore and Marilyn Monroe are standouts.

Time Square Chronicles

Smart Blonde

For her part, Ms. Bianchi does show some real comic chops and mimicry skills, and her few moments as Ruth Gordon are quite funny.

Talkin Broadway

Smart Blonde

Andrea Bianchi juggles various Great Women of Show Business, including Comden, Marilyn Monroe (who shows up to compare dumb-blonde poses with Holliday), and — in a wicked, sketch-comedy turn — a pushy, gesticulating Ruth Gordon.

Light and Sound America

Smart Blonde

Bianchi in particular comes dangerously close to stealing the show, portraying everyone from Betty Comden to Marilyn Monroe.

Stage and Cinema

Smart Blonde

Andrea Bianchi demonstrates strong comedic talent as she moves from Betty Comden to Ruth Gordon to Holliday’s communist -lesbian lover, Yetta Cohn; and finally and unexpectedly, Marilyn Monroe. As someone who spent time around Betty and Adolph and Ruthie, let me add that these impersonations were most cleverly accomplished.
