Coombs, reminiscent of a young Kristin Chenoweth, plays the role of Corie Bratter in a delightfully bubbly and giddy manner, never missing a beat. Her energy is contagious and carries the first act of the show. As the show progresses, her character becomes quite mean and bitter, though Coombs is still able to easily fit these different personalities into the guise of one multi-dimensional character.
