Best Voice Of Authority

Janis Stinson

Some stage performers need time to develop that convincing sense of experience that grounds them in a character or a song. Not Janis Stinson. The instant this warm, funny actress/singer opens her mouth, whether it's to belt out "Blues in the Night," deliver the poetic musings of a grieving widow in The America Play, or take us "Way Over Yonder" via the music of Carole King, she convinces you that she Knows Whereof She Speaks, that she's Been There and Done That. For Stinson always draws her rich, ripe, husky voice from deep within, straight from her soul, and it gives her automatic authority. That voice, matched with an electric presence and priceless comic savvy, puts Stinson in the top rank of Austin stage artists.
