…strong presence and powerful singing…
The Wiz “The Cowardly Lion as played by Damian Norfleet commands the stage with a strong presence and powerful singing. His diction is clear and his words can be understood (which is really one of the most important parts of performing on The Strand’s stage.) And his make-up is evocative of “The Lion King” or “Cats.” Edge Media Network
