BWW Reviews: FAITH PRINCE Knows A Thing Or Two About Musical ComedyBWW Reviews: FAITH PRINCE Knows A Thing Or Two About Musical Comedy
by Michael L. Quintos - Apr 12, 2010

Faith Prince has a wonderful gift: she is that rare performer that can make you ache with laughter with a flick of an eyebrow or a scream of a line, then instantly make you sigh with melancholy with a heart-tugging ballad. That Fanny Brice-tinged bravado and uncompromising comedic timing, coupled with a full-bodied, bawdy vocal prowess, is why Ms. Prince's solo cabaret show is an entertainingly exciting live stage experience. The talented, Tony-winning Broadway star, who also juggles a healthy career in film and television, recently returned to the Orange County Performing Arts Center to close out the Center's 2009-2010 Cabaret series. Her set, which she spoke about in an interview with BroadwayWorld, is a 'Best of Faith Prince' showcase, in which she dips into many of her previous Cabaret offerings as well as offer new material that she debuted during the wonderfully zippy hour-and-fifteen minute set. Accompanied only by pianist and musical arranger Alex Rybeck, Prince commanded the stage and enraptured the opening night audience with a heartwarming set of jazz standards, Broadway favorites, rarely heard tunes, and some delightfully droll anecdotes from her career on the stage.
