*** "Evocative it casts a heady spell fraught musical dialogue that could be taking place in the Twilight Zone. The aural nakedness opens a cavernous space for spirits to chase one another in circles. More than once, I thought of the Orpheus myth and the demons and angels who inhabit Mr. Lynch's imagination stirred to life." -Stephen Holden, New York Times
*** "Dark, dark, dark and hypnotically compelling." -Will Friedwald, Wall Street Journal
***"If you are a connoisseur and lover of Lynch films and their soundtracks, the excellence of Ghosts of Love will leave you practically euphoric." -Stephen Hanks, Broadway World
*** "Many of the songs, including several co-written by Lynch, may not be familiar. But it doesn't matter: following one another with minimum dialogue, sometimes re-interpreted by the performers to offer new meanings as Lynch has been known to do in his films the numbers follow one another to provide a non-stop, riveting story of a relationship." -Peter Haas, Cabaret Scenes
*** "The idea of building a cabaret show around music from the eerie and surreal filmography of David Lynch would not likely be a good one for many in New York's cabaret community. It takes a certain kind of grit and a love of risk that many performers simply lack. Luckily, Lauren Fox and Ritt Henn appear to be among the select few with the audacity to raise the idea and not wind up giggling over it and quickly scrapping it. The challenging but largely successful show they've fashioned, "Ghosts of Love Songs from the Reel World of David Lynch," stays true to the spooky and inscrutable Lynch sensibility. The performers take the darkness seriously." -Mark Dundas Wood

Ghosts of Love - Songs from the Reel World of David Lynch
David Lynch has been an American film icon for over four decades. His highly stylized, surreal vision of the world, and especially relationships, has inspired so many filmmakers who followed.... Lynch is a master at curating music for his soundtracks, making them as much a part of his films as the films, themselves. He has also written several stunning songs.
Fox & Henn has taken these songs from David Lynch's soundtracks, along with dialogue extracted from his screenplays, and arranged them to tell a new story (using Lynch's dark, Film Noir style) of two people, haunted and tortured by love.
