Egan's 54 Below debut reunites her with audiences at the infamous Studio 54, where she portrayed "Sally Bowles" in Cabaret longer than any other actress during the previous revival, winning critical raves from every major New York publication. Her appearance also coincides with the 20th anniversary of her Broadway debut in "Beauty and the Beast," (4/18/1994) for which she was nominated for both Tony and Drama Desk Awards as "Best Actress." "The Belle of Broadway" showcases Egan's diverse acting chops, riotous humor and celebrated voice, which critics dub "the perfect Broadway instrument." Throughout the evening, Susan takes you on a journey from Belle to beyond, with hilarious personal anecdotes and magnificent music by classic Broadway composers as well as songs from today's hottest new writers. Susan has performed her concert throughout North and South America and will be launching a new tour with LML Music Presents in association with Live On Stage out of Nashville starting in fall of 2014.

BWW Reviews: TANYA MOBERLY is Terrific Tackling Tunes of New York Songwriters at Don't Tell Mama
by Stephen Hanks - Nov 06, 2013

It turns out that when it came to Tanya Moberly cabaret shows and this reviewer, the third time was the charm. After being blown away by Moberly's powerful voice and stage presence when I first caught her one-song performances at the Sunday Salon Open Mics three years ago, I wasn't crazy about either of her full-blown cabaret shows the past two years (Tanya Moberly Sings Di Franco/Tanya Moberly Sings Jonatha Brooke in 2011 and Tanya Lorraine Moberly Sings Barbra Joan Streisand in 2012—in spite of her receiving MAC and BroadwayWorld.com Best Female Vocalist nominations for the latter). But her new show that opened this past Friday and Saturday nights at Don't Tell Mama, I Love New York Songwriters, pressed many of my cabaret buttons—in a good way. While there were still some minor flaws—owing to a certain stubbornness in her approach to a cabaret show—this eclectic set of original songs written by some of the city's best “unknown” composers was consistently entertaining. In this particular show, Ms. Moberly was Tanya Terrific. (more...)

SUE MATSUKI Is a Little Bit Country and a Little Bit Blues in GENRES at the Metropolitan Room
by Stephen Hanks - Oct 21, 2013

As a 20-year cabaret veteran and 10-time MAC Award nominee (winning three), Sue Matsuki is nothing if not ambitious and a tad pretentious. How else to explain someone with both the chutzpah and the checkbook to stage a run of four shows at the Metropolitan Room (soon to become six) in which each show covers a different musical genre with a totally different set list and employs different directors, musical directors and bands? Just writing that sentence has me clutching my checkbook for deal life. (more...)
