Lisa Donovan has been hailed by critics as an all-around entertainer who can do it all.

As an actress, she won an award from the Southern California Motion Picture Council as "Outstanding Newcomer of the Year."

Lisa from her show recent Las Vegas ShowAs a singer, Lisa consistently receives rhapsodic reviews from the toughest critics in the business.

As a comedienne, she's been praised for performing comedy with Lucille-Ball-like precision timing.

And as a dancer, she received high critical praise from no less a publication than The New York Times.

Lisa just finished a two-year run as Mother Superior in the delightful, world-famous musical comedy NUNSENSE at the now-named Westgate Hotel, formerly the Las Vegas Hilton, the hotel Elvis Presley called home.

Lisa proved her enormous singing range on the long-running television show
FACE THE MUSIC, which was broadcast first in national syndication and later on cable networks for more than a decade. On that show Lisa performed everything from soft rock to light opera and set some Guiness-type world records.

In all, she sang parts of more than eleven thousand musical numbers. Click to see full size

On the New York stage, Lisa starred in a revival of BABES IN ARMS, directed by the legendary Ginger Rogers, who hand-picked Lisa for the role. That's the play in which Lisa received all that praise from The New York Times, which actually likened her to a young Ginger Rogers.

Lisa has performed non-musically as well.

On the stage in Los Angeles, she played all three female roles in Sean Waldron's chilling drama about atomic radiation poisoning.
