…Asked to do the most and answering with great aplomb is Welch as the uncensored wife.

Here's where Wendy Welch shines, out-sparkling her dress, Welch mimics exactly Smith's nasally accent and imperious attitude...

Appearing at numerous regional theatres, Wendy Welch has performed many of the most iconic roles in American theatre, i.e. Margaret in “Light in the Piazza, Linda Loman in “Death of a Salesman,” Victoria in “Victor/Victoria,” Sonia in “Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike,” Dolly Levi in “The Matchmaker,” and Madame Armfeldt in “A Little Night Music.”
After playing a number of ingenue roles such as Sandy in “Grease” and Patience in “Patience,” Wendy spent much of the 80’s & early 90’s in New York singing with her husband Willy (often with the Bare Bones Band). They regularly appeared at venues such as The Bitter End, Gerdes Folk City & the West Bank Café Downstairs Theatre Bar. They recorded three albums, "Welcome the Light", "Open Eyes, Open Hands, Open Heart" and "Prayer for the Journey" on the Tamarisk Records label. Wendy and Willy toured the United States for over 10 years in a variety of venues.
She returned to the stage in the late 90’s, and since then has also been featured in numerous commercials, TV shows, films and voice-overs. Wendy also conceived and performed the one-woman Gershwin show “S’Wonderful, S’Wendy.” An in-demand teacher, she has conducted master classes and instructed performers aged 13 to 83 at colleges, theatres, and workshops, as well as in her private studio.
However, her favorite role, perhaps, is that of mother of two delightful grown children.
