Danya Katok: "I Wish It So"
Chris Macke Photography
Vocalist Danya Katok is joined by pianist Michael Sheetz in an evening of musical theatre, jazz, and contemporary folk gems that tell a story of perseverance towards her ultimate wish, motherhood. Songs by Marc Blitzstein, Jeff Blumenkrantz, Joey Contreras, Stephen Sondheim, Georgia Stitt, and more capture the pain, heartbreak, fear, and finally, joy in this most personal story directed by Dewey Moss.
Danya Katok is an exceptionally versatile vocalist from State College, PA. She made her New York City Opera debut as Max in Oliver Knussen's Where the Wild Things Are, a role for which she was praised by The New York Times as being superb, and appeared as a soloist with The Boston Pops (An Evening of Cole Porter," alongside Broadway legend Kelli O'Hara). She has performed two cabaret shows at Don't Tell Mama: her solo show, CATS!: a cabaret and From Charm City to the Big Apple, a duo show with Kat Guthrie.
"Lyric soprano Danya Katok is a young, fresh-faced performer with a sweet onstage demeanor...she is able to play chameleonadjusting her singing style to perform numbers with a folk-pop flavor or a contemporary musical-theater sound."
-Mark Dundas Wood, BistroAwards.com
"Keep an eye on Katok... While this was a lightly staged revue, Katok fully inhabited her character on every song, from her Its De-Lovely duet with Anderson to her spring-water-pure performance of Use Your Imagination."
-Joel Brown, The Boston Globe
"Katok sings with a crystalline soprano and makes it sound effortless in Do I Love You and Use Your Imagination."
-Nancy Grossman, BroadwayWorld.com
