BWW Reviews: STACY SULLIVAN's Intimate New Show at the Metropolitan Room Has An Identity ProblemBWW Reviews: STACY SULLIVAN's Intimate New Show at the Metropolitan Room Has An Identity Problem

Unfortunately, five of these songs have only the most tenuous relationship to material that follows, diminishing reception with thoughts of--Where's the connection? What's she trying to say?

BWW Reviews: The Transcendent Voice of Ageless and Evergreen JUDY COLLINS Once Again Enchants Café CarlyleBWW Reviews: The Transcendent Voice of Ageless and Evergreen JUDY COLLINS Once Again Enchants Café Carlyle
by Alix Cohen - May 6, 2015

Judy Collins, who celebrated her 76th birthday on May 1, has been entertaining us for 56 years "not including childhood." A formidable contributor to the soundtrack of Boomer lives, her transcendent voice conjures memories like few others of any generation. Collins' current show at Cafe Carlyle (which opened last night and runs until May 16) mines familiar territory like evocative comfort food, including retold tales that sometimes go on too long. Many songs take on new coloring both vocally and in terms of changed context, i.e. that of a mature woman looking back. (more...)

But now that I've seen it done I can understand the cultish following the show engenders and thankfully it was this production that filled the gap in my Musical Theater knowledge as this incredible ensemble took every angst ridden note and made them soar.
