WHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING
"Glamour, glitz and mascara... Expect something over-the-top!" MetroWeekly.com
"Whirlwind Comedy!" PlanetOut.com
"Hysterical! More energy than the Energizer bunny!" TalkinBroadway.com
"The best club act I've ever seen." Opera News
"Merman combines the physical presence of a buxom Russ Myer starlet with a hint of perky Doris Day and the brassiness of her spiritual mother, Ethel Merman." Variety
"Hysterical...as much craftsmanship as camp...It's a night of cabaret in the hands and boobs of one who is so talented and sick." - HX New York
A delirious synthesis of Devine, Karen Finley and Montserrat Caballe! This big, beautiful creature is kind of a demented genius!" TimeOut New York
"...a deliciously loony sensibility...a voice that suggests a happy collision of Shirley Bassey and Barbara Cook...imagine it in a lounge act of a much younger Ann-Margret as conceived by John Waters and you'll have an idea of the irresistible insanity in store for you" Bay Windows
"...an evening of magical entertainment that will make you proud to be in the presence of a genius before she's so famous that you can't stand to hear about her anymore." Dallas Voice
