Fulton's wonderfully affecting performance carries Ruby to the finish line. Her strong interior core gives way to an uneasy, nervous exterior. You can see the desperation in the way she carries her proud self, and you can hear it in her voice, too. Shen gives her notes to sing that are so high they don't even seem real, and Fulton simultaneously delivers them with incredible finesse and control, while making them seem like howls of real pain.

Fulton has all of the child-like exuberance required for the role (Dorothy), combined with a powerhouse of a voice that proves itself within the first few notes of "Soon As I Get Home" early in Act One.

...(the excellent Danyel Fulton)

Fulton, a Brooklyn-based actor is a find… I can't recall any actor/singer sustaining for an entire act so much emotionally charged singing and recitative… She is completely committed to expressing the deeply embedded truth...

...given exquisitely emotive life by Fulton

Thelma is a "secondary" character in "The Trip to Bountiful" but she resonates so effectively and lastingly in Fulton's fully rounded, richly detailed and nuanced performance...
