“Playwright Paul Adams indeed knows about the transgenerational appeal of Ms. Day, as evidenced by his loving, well-crafted musical drama Doris Day: My Secret Love.

“Starring the intensely engaging Tiffan Borelli as Day”

The show’s biggest asset, hands down, is Ms. Borelli in the title role…From the opening number Lullaby of Broadway right on through to the finale, she captures Day’s range and patented style:  smooth as freshly churned vanilla ice cream…The physical resemblance and Borelli’s channeling of Day’s eternally sunny aura are actually quite astonishing; at times, it’s difficult to believe that we are not actually watching the real Doris back in her hey-Day.

“This would be a good time to give a shout-out to the hard-working David Beck. Beck not only proves to be a gifted pianist from the show’s very first musical note, but he also portrays many of the men in Day’s life.”

‘The interactions between Borelli as Day, and Beck as the men in Day’s life, are well portrayed throughout the show; the actors’ chemistry is very good.

– Lavender After Dark

An enjoyable indulgence in nostalgia...Ms Borelli’s strong suit is her acting chops. She shines in the scenes with her son, Terry, and her friend Rock Hudson. All the male characters are played by David Beck, a talent ed and versatile performer. …    I would recommend it as a lesson in the golden years of Hollywood films, especia lly musicals.”

– High Drama

Beck is an admirable chameleon….[writer] Paul Adams gives the audience a chance to see this side of her life.”

“Wonderful…very engaging” ….”The performances were so great and wonderful.”

The performance of Tiffan Boreilli as Doris Day is really quite wonderful. She must have worked very very hard to emulate Doris’ vocal delivery. She (Doris) had a very unique way of singing. She could use this very feather-like bravado that Tiffan Borelli really manages to give a very good approximation of that. And also the way she would bend notes. She must have worked very hard. . . . (David Beck ) is amazing…He does this with acting that is a 100 percent wonderful in addition to actually playing the piano.”

Broadway Radio

“‘Doris Day: My Secret Love’ was written by gay playwright Paul Adams. At 63, this marks his Off-Broadway debut as a playwright. Paul is also the Artistic Director of the NYC based Emerging Artists Theatre, the company he founded 30 years ago. He formed the company three decades ago so he could help produce/showcase work by emerging artists especially the LGBTQ community.”
