BWW Review: Karen Oberlin Presents Captivating Revival Of Frank Loesser Tribute Show As One Of 'Cabaret's Greatest Hits' at Metropolitan RoomBWW Review: Karen Oberlin Presents Captivating Revival Of Frank Loesser Tribute Show As One Of 'Cabaret's Greatest Hits' at Metropolitan Room
by Alix Cohen - Jan 15, 2016

Karen Oberlin's original performance of Heart & Soul: The Songs of Frank Loesser in 2010 (Loesser's Centennial celebration year) at The Algonquin Hotel's legendary Oak Room earned her a MAC Award nomination for “Best Major Artist” (as well as an award for the Live CD) and sterling reviews. Hence, the show's inclusion in Producer Stephen Hanks' monthly Metropolitan Room series, New York Cabaret's Greatest Hits (which launched last August and runs through 2016). Oberlin's captivating performance Wednesday evening showcased not only her acknowledged prowess with plumy ballads, but also her flair for comedy and an aptitude that handles nuanced jazz with seamless transitions. The vocalist was joined by her original collaborators, Musical Director Jon Weber on piano and Sean Smith on bass, while the show was directed by the piece's original helmsman, Eric Michael Gillett.
