Birdie West, the youngest of the extremely gifted children of Maura West & Scott DeFreitas. This afternoon, I got to watch her in the title role of “Matilda” at Newhall’s Canyon Theater Guild. A voice that puts a lump in your throat, an absolutely delightful & competent dancer… she commands your attention & earns your trust instantly. Maybe Birdie can thank her mom & dad for the charisma, but her chops are all hers. Such finesse, such nuanced & savvy choices… She had me on the edge of my seat & in the palm of her sweet little hands from beginning to end & never let me down. Trust me… you have to see this kid. Now through Feb 23rd at the Canyon Theater Guild in Old Town Newhall, (about as far from downtown LA as Calabasas.) Worth it.
