RECENT REVIEWS

Deborah Karpel

Deborah Karpel

In her show The Midwood Miracle, recently at Pangea, singer-writer-storyteller Deborah Karpel told the story of her estrangement from, and eventual reconciliation (however tentative) with, her late father, with whom she had a common familial arrangement: “not asking anything of each other” and barely speaking.

Michael Cummings

Michael Cummings

At one point in his September 14 show at the Triad, Michael Cummings acknowledged friends and family in attendance. When he had finished, it seemed he’d greeted nearly everyone in the room.

Her technical ability and artistry went a long way to gloss over […]

Rachelle Garniez

Rachelle Garniez

Pangea Wednesday September 26, 7:00 pm Tuesday October 23, 7:00 pm 2018 Bistro Award winner, singer-instrumentalist-songwriter Rachelle Garniez is a true original. Her musical sensibilities are grounded in classic American popular music, but her lyrics have a wry, offbeat, and very contemporary wit and attitude. She returns with her most recent show, NYC Serenades, an […]
