 Notes & Reviews
 
'Moira Danis' most complex and artistically mature offering to date. The material is filled with delights and discoveries, her interpretations explore a broad spectrum of attitudes and emotions with intelligence, sensitivity, and lovely singing, and the show makes marvelously effective use of the three accompanists. On every level, a pleasurable and rewarding experience.' Roy Sander, reviewer for BistroAwards.com 'Keen intelligence, especially thoughtful interpretations and vocal variety - with superb accompaniment - combined to make Moira Danis' new show of choice material an excellent choice for the discerning cabaret-goer... This is cabaret at it's best: songs as character pieces, performed by someone who can act the lyrics as well as sing sublimely, with many colors... Moira generously shares the spotlight with her talented musicians - all of whom also sing, allowing for striking harmonies and some solo moments... As the show came close to a close, the singer referred to the lives portrayed in the collection of portraits of Some People's Lives, commenting, 'There's still one character left:.....Me.' And she sang with delicacy and passion about not wanting to be 'Unknown.' She won't be to those who are known for their taste, as she and her team are.' Rob Lester, Cabaret Scenes 'This show is smart from head to toe...The show starts with a STUNNING a capella rendition of Janis Ian/Kye Fleming's 'Some People's Lives' and, by-the-by, all 3 gentlemen on stage, Wells, Ben and Brian can SING! These harmonies were tight and gorgeous and backed up Moira beautifully...this was a very impressive show.' Sue Matsuki, CabaretHotlineOnline.
