Me So Hapa Blog Interview by Huffington Post contributor Alex Chester.

The Dallas Morning News review for Dallas Summer Musicals' King and I: "In the evocative "Something Wonderful," Tami Swartz imbues Lady Thiang, the king's first wife, with the grandeur of a love that transcends the king's shortcomings and impels her to entreat Anna to help him to achieve goals she doesn't fully understand."

Review for MT Wichita's King and I:

The Wichita Eagle's tremendous review of Music Theatre of Wichita's King and I - Tami Swartz is the very picture of poise and dignity as Lady Thiang, the King's chief wife and her operatic soprano gives tragic strength to her "Something Wonderful" portrait of her husband.
