We gave it a B+

Sherie Rene Scott, a 2005 Tony nominee for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, co-wrote and stars in Everyday Rapture, a virtually one-woman musical that charmingly fills a Megan Mullally-size hole in Roundabout’s Broadway schedule (following the abrupt cancellation of Lips Together, Teeth Apart when the Will & Grace alum dropped out). When she’s not belting out tunes by Elton John, Tom Waits, and even Fred Rogers, the actress plays a half-Mennonite woman named Sherie Rene Scott who seeks a balance between her upbringing in a religion rooted in self-denial and her longing for fame. It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood of this pumped-up cabaret act. B+
