Barbara McCarthy

 

Barbara McCarthy has appeared off-Broadway in the long-running improvisational hit “The Proposition” at The Manhattan Theatre Club,  with the New Jersey State Opera Company and the Stuyvesant Opera Company in New York City. She has performed roles in regional theatre ranging from Hedy LaRue in “How to Succeed” to Zerlina in “Don Giovanni”. She has appeared in industrial films and in over 250 television commercials for such companies as American Express, AT&T, Johnson & Johnson, Mercedes, Hallmark, Nabisco and Proctor & Gamble, as well as roles in the daytime television soap operas “All My Children” and “One Life to Live”.  She has recorded three CDs,  Barbara McCarthy Sings!, By George—the Songs of George Gershwin, and Dreaming This Time (currently in production).   

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. 
 
This show challenges the usual sentimental treatment of love and joyously captures a variety of relationships, genres, international flavors and times gone by. There is a taste of Jacques Brel (Ne Me Quitte Pas), lost love from the '70's as told by Joan Baez (Diamonds & Rust), a trip to the Italian Riviera with Noel Coward (Love on the Piccolo Marina) and the “delicious homicidal elan” of Rodgers & Hart's To Keep My Love Alive
