BWW Reviews: Raissa Katona Bennett & Kenneth Gartman's Frenetic Homage to Late 20th Century Movie Music Doesn't Quite Lift Us Up Where We BelongBWW Reviews: Raissa Katona Bennett & Kenneth Gartman's Frenetic Homage to Late 20th Century Movie Music Doesn't Quite Lift Us Up Where We Belong
by Remy Block - Feb 24, 2015

Veteran cabaret performer Raissa Katona Bennett and Musical Director Kenneth Gartman are very good friends who for the past few years have been performing together in what might be called the cabaret equivalent of movie shorts. But with 3Decades in the Dark: Raissa and Kenneth Go to the Movies (a five-show run that ended Feb. 21 at the Laurie Beechman Theater), Bennett and Gartman have finally presented their first feature length duo cabaret show. Both performers have garnered praise as individual performers in musical theater and cabaret. Bennett, who is the charming producer and host of the Award-winning Concerts for City Greens at Tudor City, once played Christine in Phantom of the Opera, and has performed solo shows at venues such as the old Feinstein's. Gartman, who recently musically directed The White City in concert at 54 Below, presented a highly praised solo show in 2011. Sounds like a match made in cabaret heaven, right? (more...)

BWW Reviews: Carolyn Montgomery-Forant Triumphantly Rises Again in Cabaret With Life-Affirming Show VISIBLE PHOENIX at the BeechmanBWW Reviews: Carolyn Montgomery-Forant Triumphantly Rises Again in Cabaret With Life-Affirming Show VISIBLE PHOENIX at the Beechman
by Billie Roe - Nov 26, 2014

According to mythology, the 'Phoenix' was a bird of great beauty, said to have lived 1,000 years in the Arabian wilderness. The Phoenix burns itself to ashes on an ancient funeral pyre, only to rise again from those ashes with the renewed exuberance of youth. Its renewed life cycle symbolizes the immortality of the spirit, the rebirth of idealism, the essence of creativity, and the aura of eternal hope. With her new show at the Laurie Beechman, Visible Phoenix (which opened October 17 and returned last Friday night), multi-award winner Carolyn Montgomery-Forant has returned to the cabaret stage (after a 14-year hiatus to raise her son and run a cafe business) as the very personification of that rare beautiful bird.
