​​DIANE J. FINDLAY is a firecracker, even when confined to a recliner.  When she's let loose to enjoy her romance with Windslow, Findlay shows the kind of gusto that turns aging gracefully into love of life.  She whirls about the kitchen, baking muffins and keeping Julie in line with sharp remarks, alol with a grin that lights up her face. Findlay nearly rescures the play by showing Cora's ability to find that smile again, without taking joy for granted.

VENUS RISING

. . . as played by Diane J. Findlay, a right-on-target portrayal as to stance, posturing, mannerisms and as to the overall essence of the feisty, outspoken, complicated woman. Her cold stare in his direction speaks volumes. 

​Seeing the real Ball onscreen will not destroy Findlay's richly textured portrayal and will add greatly to the amusement and mystique.
Broadway World, Don Crigware

Diane J. Findlay's portrayal leans toward homage rather than imitation, but it’s convincing because she gets the star’s essence right. One of Lucy’s great strengths as a comedian was her readability – you could always see what was on her character’s mind. Findlay captures that quality.
Orange County Register, Paul Hodgins


Impersonating a legend as familiar as Ball is a lost cause, but Findlay looks like she’s channeling Estelle Getty in a tousled fire-engine red wig.
