What the critics are saying:
"For a guided tour through varied vintage movie melodies, Sarah Rice's show is just the ticket..." - Cabaret Scenes

"If the glorious gods that govern cabaret were to take the coloratura vocal stylings and elegance of Barbara Cook, merge them with the earthiness and humor of Baby Jane Dexter, and wrap the whole package in a unique bundle of sparkle, the end result would without question be Sarah Rice. And by the time Rice brings the evening to a close, with a singularly unique version of Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini's "Moon River," the crowd gathered is not merely her fans but a worshiping cult." - Andrew Martin, Nightlife Exchange

"In her entertaining new cabaret show of songs from or about "old Hollywood," it is evident that her voice remains a ravishing instrument... Not only is her acting commanding and her singing exemplary...the result is quite simply the best and most riveting rendition of "Pirate Jenny" I've ever heard..."- Roy Sander, Bistro Awards
