The right address being the East Side of New York City and the right people being the denizens thereof, we meet Melanie and her husband, who are rich enough to live at the right address but who do not have blood blue enough to be accepted by its high society. Of the many flavors and vocal ranges that Bernadette Dunne offers to add color to the written word, her Spanish accent is quite the juiciest. Some of her whimsical portrayals are refreshing and picturesque in the midst of the extended cast of characters. Dunne may feel urged to make each person singularly different from another, but in so doing she puts unwelcome colorations into her own lyrical and pretty voice, losing the atmosphere of realism the listener needs to accept the story.
