Isaac Sutton

Big voice, big smile and big personality are the first phrases that come into mind when describing Israeli entertainer Isaac Sutton. He lights up the room as soon as he appears on stage.

Whether he is singing in English or Hebrew, his lively and dynamic performance makes each number fun to watch.

He was joined by two extraordinary vocalists—DeLaney Westfall and Rachel Gold—who helped create the show’s party atmosphere.

I got an idea of what to expect when, in his opening number “Come Fly with Me,” he altered the lyric singing “in lama land there a Jewish band.” His second number, “Sway,” sung in English and Hebrew had us clapping along. Westfall joined him for four very amusing numbers, including “Hello, Dolly!

” and “Anything You Can Do,” with Westfall showing that she can indeed hold a note a lot longer than just about anyone.

Their duet of “The Rain in Spain” sung in Hebrew was hilarious. After saying that as a bass baritone he never gets the romantic lead in a show, he performed Javert’s “Stars,” from Les Misérables. He walked into the audience shaking hands while performing a medley from the Israeli musical Kazablam. Gold, who starred as Christine in The Phantom of the Opera, showed off her spectacular soprano, which blended perfectly with Sutton’s on “All I Ask of You” and “The Phantom of the Opera.” This was followed by a duet with Gold (singing in English) and Sutton (singing in Hebrew) of “Climb Every Mountain.

” The lively closing number, “Le’Chalet Cha’am Haze” from the Israeli musical I Like Mike, had us once again clapping along. His encore was a dramatic “Man of La Mancha,” which gave Sutton the opportunity to display his big baritone voice.
