In Cabaret Scenes McCarthy has been described as having a “clear vocal tone and refined presentation”---Elizabeth Ahlfors.
“Barbara McCarthy knows her Gershwin ---she effortlessly slips into a variety of styles with her smooth, controlled tones ---savor the depth and range of this talented lady's voice.” ---Laure Lawson, ElectronicLink.com.
The Star Ledger has described her as “singing with a bright clarity akin to that of the veteran Broadway and cabaret star Barbara Cook” ---George Kanzler.
Barbara McCarthy presents a classic cabaret show. Dramatically enlivened by her diverse stage background, her performance embraces many musical genres and displays the agility and strength of her three octave range.
DREAMING THIS TIME
Dreaming is the easy way to take a chance, go back in time, imagine the future and share the experiences of others. There's no risk, no reality, just hope. Dreams are only limited by the imagination so “Anything Goes”. This show will take you through shared experiences where you will surely find your dream.
“I Dreamed a Dream” that “Maybe This Time” “I Loved” “My Man” at “A Bar on the Piccolo Marina”. These songs, a dreamy tango and dreams of paradise are found in songs by Gershwin, Berlin, Brel and others. Everybody has a dream and you'll find yours in Barbara McCarthy's show, DREAMING THIS TIME.
