Wendi Loomis / Press

“The singer, a woman named Wendi Loomis, had a whiskey and razor blade voice and also played solos on a clarinet, all of which filled me with a profound desire to drink gin and tonic (I tend to avoid spirits for the standard reasons). I quickly fetched a highball and spent some very pleasant time listening...”

“Actors Loomis and Lombardi entertained the crowd with their high-energy, non-stop recitations of famous poems such as, The Purple Cow by Gillett Burgesse, The Little Orphan Annie by James Whitcomb Riley and Stopping ByWoods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost.”

“Both actors deliver strong, convincing performances. Loomis lends the appropriate comic, exuberant, and, at times harried air to make Liza a very likeable though flawed persona.”

“Getting the first laugh is the major challenge, says Wendi Loomis. "You listen for them laughing. You don't ponder it, but you play off it."”

“Loomis and Viamontes presented dramatic interpretations of light-hearted works like 7th Grade Soap Opera by Paul Fleischman and The Kiss by Sara Teasdale, as well as more serious poetry like Poe's The Raven and Hughes' Harlem II (Dream Deferred)...."We put enthusiasm back into poetry," Loomis said.”

“Wendi Loomis kept a full-tilt journal of her year busking the road as a poet/poetry proselytizer for Poetry Alive! Do YOU have what it takes to take it to the people 24-7? --Bob Holman”
