The Wall Street Journal recently referred to her as a "nonpareil cabaret singer and called her 2018 album, Sondheim Sublime, The best all-Sondheim album ever recorded.

Her Sondheim roles on stage include Dot in Sunday In The Park With George at The Kennedy Center, Clara in Passion at Classic Stage Company; and Leona in the NY City Center Encores! production of Do I Hear A Waltz?

Her starring roles on Broadway include My Fair Lady, Amour, High Society. Among her other musical mainstays is Michel Legrand who arranged and conducted her symphonic album Legrand Affair. She was the only American performer invited to sing at the extraordinary two-day memorial to Legrand in 2019 at Paris Grand Rex theater. She has also sung countless concerts of American song, ranging from Randy Newman to Irving Berlin, including stints at the 92 St Y, Birdland, Joes Pub, Carnegie Hall, Town Hall, Lincoln Centers Allen Room, and many appearances at Feinsteins/ 54 Below, with her special concert-essay about coming back to New York was held over for encores twice last fall.
