“Her show is uplifting and life affirming, a force to be reckoned with, bombarding us with irreverent humour and dazzling talent.” – The Canberra Times
“She’s bloody talented. She can sing. She can act. She has comic timing…the confidence, the unmitigated chutzpah…” – Crikey Sydney
“Between the tall tales, double entendre, and tongue-in-cheek vulgarity, the heartache behind the humour, most evident in Alcorn’s rendition of Am I Blue, elevates her titillating tribute to a tender triumph.” – The West Australian
粗俗，傲慢正如原版一样的精彩，“The Divine Miss Bette”使得观众有机会领略我们这个时代最伟大卡巴莱艺术家之一的作品。由同样发掘Bette Midler的Steve Ostrow训练，Alcorn将带领观众回到1973年纽约宫殿剧场。
Alcorn将会热情演绎早期经典曲目包括“Stay With Me Baby”,“ You’re Moving Out Today”, “The Rose”, “Wind Beneath My Wings”, “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, 和“ In The Mood”.
“观众可以从Alcorn演绎的《Am I Blue》中领略到荒诞不经的故事，双关语，半开玩笑的粗俗语言以及幽默过后心痛的神态。所有这些正是她成功的因素”—The West Australian
