Okay, I went to see my sister in the musical, “Anything Goes” at my old high school. (She played Bonnie, btw, the gangster’s moll).
However, the character of Reno made me think-she’s a sexy, sassy evangelist/nightclub singer.
Was the character based on the real life person, the notorious Amie Semple McPherson, who combined sex appeal with religion, and faked her own death back in the 20s? Because that’s immediately who I thought of!
