LINDA PURL – ACTRESS, SINGER
LINDA PURL HAS BEEN ON MANY T.V. SHOWS LIKE “MATLOCK”, “MURDER SHE WROTE”, AND SHE ACTED ALL THE WAY TO THE HIT SHOW “THE OFFICE.”
Now we find her in the Glamorous Rrazz Room in the Hotel Nikko. Even though Linda has done a hell of a lot of acting – she recalls her days at home where she was always surround by Jazz and all kinds of music. They let everyone know that she learned to play piano, bang on Conga Drums. She still loves to act, but listening to the greats like Stan Kenton, Mel Torme, Sergio Mendez, Nancy Wilson and Stan Getz were always on the phonograph. And, that fits her comfort zone perfectly. Oh, by the way, Purl also has made some appearances on “Desperate Housewife’s.” – that will soon disappear.
My take on Linda Purl? She has a wonderful, wide range of singing ability. She can be funny and dramatic and simply dazzling when she sings those wonderful “Great Standards”. As she grew up in a magical world at her parent’s home, Tennessee Williams was a frequent guest among many, many big stars from musicians to T.V. Personalities, and movie Actors.
I think you should see this show! It’s a delightful surprise. Two nights only – Mar. 13 and Mar. 14.
