Crane mulls over life, love and the world in general and wrestles with the difficulties of watching life get old while she remains eternally 27, “over and over and over again”. Witty songs by the wry and zany Jay Leonhart and Dave Frishberg - a pastiche including Harold Arlen, Stephen Sondheim, Johnny Mandel, John Wallowitch, Lew Spence, Clark Gesner and Frank Loesser.
***“Cynthia Crane at the top of her game: Artfully assembled, delivered with a lifetime's worth of craft . Performing with hard won wisdom, Crane gave her show a political slant, peppering the evening with witty songs. We hope she'll bring this show back again” Barbara & Scott Siegel; TalkinBroadway.com”
***“I was so thrilled to be listening to that smoky velvet sound that has only been available to me on her 5 CDs for these past six years. So well constructed and so perfectly performed the hour flew by like a flash. I am sure this show will be back” Stu Hamstra CabaretHotline on line
***“A petite package of charm, wit and talent, this self-described "saloon singer” is an expressive vocalist and an exquisite interpreter, reminiscent of those who bestowed an aura of elegance on the major rooms of the 'forties and 'fifties....one of the most accomplished and audience-savvy to hit the circuit in months...could be a master class for those who want to know how to craft a winning cabaret show, and is a ‘don’t miss’ for those who enjoy seeing one. ” Peter Leavy, Cabaret Scenes Magazine
