Even when she's telling someone else's story, she makes it hers." - Stephen Holden, The New York Times

Backed by her trio Jon Weber on piano, Ritt Henn on bass, and Mike Rosengarten on guitar you will hear each song as you never have before. Ms. Mulder's cabaret show Tom...In his words, the songs of Tom Waits was called "Far and away the season's best cabaret show, everything the genre can be and almost never is" by the New York Times, and this new show will be no exception.
