Marilyn was awesome! She worked with me in a professional and flexible way to schedule the event in less than ideal circumstances (i asked her to travel a far amount and it was not a typical venue) She did a fantastic job of customizing her performance for my situation. Every single one of my guests (15 or so) were very impressed with her and her performance I recommend her highly and would use her again without thinking
Marilyn was awesome. The group of friends had a great time. She was in character from the time she entered to the end. I would highly recommend this entertainer. She will be the highlight of any event!
Marilyn was the talk of the event, and helped make it one to remember. Totally professional, smart and in-character at all times, Barbara was great to work with and made for a stress-free evening. She's great with people, totally "gets" the fine-line between professionalism and entertainment (and knows when to appropriately push those boundaries), and created a wonderful atmosphere for all guests. Highly recommended.
A wonderful, highly professional performer of top notch caliber. Very good interacting with people/ guests. Excellent look, beautiful, captures Marilyn's appearance.
You we're spectacular, you encapsulated everything that was poignant to Darren. We were stunned, thrilled, amazed and enamored by your presence and I can't thank you enough!!!! Xoxoxo I am so grateful to you for touching my husband so profoundly on a particularly struggling milestone, considering most of us thought he would never see his 40th. I will forever cherish your performance Barbara, as you truly touched our family's heart.
