BWW Review: Nicholas Kaminski Brings An Exciting New Voice to The Green Room 42 Photo BWW Review: Nicholas Kaminski Brings An Exciting New Voice to The Green Room 42
by Ricky Pope - Feb 7, 2022

Nicholas Kaminski, whose self-titled show opened on Saturday at the Green Room 42, is a new writer who would have felt completely at home in the mountain resorts where clever and topical songs were created at a breakneck pace. I have had the pleasure of seeing M¬†Kaminski sing his songs individually at Michael McAssey‚Äôs ‚ÄúOpen Mac‚ÄĚ at Pangea. They are always something fresh and unexpected. Seeing an entire evening of his work was something I was looking forward to. I‚Äôm happy to report he did not disappoint. Together with his friends, Staci Jo Johnson, Rachel Phalen, Jada Valenciaga, Bart Shatto, Kelsey Kaufman, Lauren Ranahan, and Aaron Remy, he delivered over a dozen well-crafted story songs that announce the arrival of a very individual new musical theatre voice. Mr. Kaminski has a talent for catchy melodies and wry, self-deprecating lyrics that have the elegance of Bock & Harnick combined with the bawdiness of William Finn.
