BWW Review: Jack Bartholet Dazzles In LADY WITH A SONG at Club Cumming VideoBWW Review: Jack Bartholet Dazzles In LADY WITH A SONG at Club Cumming
by Scottie Roche - Oct 29, 2019

Bartholet has crafted an impressive show that balances the dazzling polish of his tall matinee idol vocals with a more bare, witty, open-hearted storytelling, which he brings to bear on the tragic outcomes born of toxic masculinity, such as gun violence, in a brilliant act of what he calls Cabe-RAGE-a portmanteau of cabaret and rage of his own devising. Where his musical performances approach frozen perfection, his spoken words are more real, more honest, less of a production. The show is ambitious, daring, powerful and entertaining.
