What the critics say..............................
New York Times Review “In her ability to revitalize familiar songs by theatrically dramatizing the lyrics, Ms. Jungr has a magic touch.”
Musical Theatre Review, UK - 5 stars ***** “If there were a London cabaret theatre crown, it would rest on Barb Jungr’s head. Her reputation for giving great performances and interpretation of songbooks that are not typical cabaret fare make this show an essential ticket. McDaniel’s Act II performance of the George Harrison’s ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ is moving, perfectly rendered on piano and feels contemporary both in songwriting and in relevance to today’s world. It is the highlight of an act that has many high points and no low ones.”
Pop Matters, UK “Deeply affecting – exhilarating - mesmerisingly intense - exquisite! Thrilling and revelatory, the show is that rarity: an Anglo/American collaboration that’s actually worth celebrating.”
Time Out New York “One of the world's great cabaret singers, England's Barb Jungr is a genuine original, deploying warmth, high drama and sensitive musicality to reinvent everything she sings....Now she teams up with musical director John McDaniel (The Rosie O'Donnell Show) to dig into the rich catalog of theBeatles. What could be fabber?”
Cabaret Scenes, New York “One after another, the songs left rapt expressions on the audience members’ faces. McDaniel’s arrangements gave new life to (the) songs.”
BroadwayWorld, "Sassy, sultry, insidious, challenging, nonsensical fun"
The Village Voice, New York, “Throughout it the twosome finds depths in the repertoire that even songwriters Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison had no idea were there.”
