Summer and Smoke

I played the Role of Nellie in this classic by Tennessee Williams.


Broadway World; Melody Hollis is a most definite standout as Nellie Ewell, Alma’s singing pupil who ends up being Buchanan’s fiancée. She makes Nellie all silly, selfish girlishness in the beginning, and then glowing with a beautiful sense of maturity and with much thought and kindness in her later scenes.
