SELECTED AS ONE OF THE TOP CABARET CDs of 2003 - "Linda Kosut's LIFE IS BUT A DREAM - the lady is incredible, the CD a gem!" --- Stu Hamstra, www.CabaretHotlineOnline.com
BEST OF THEATRE 2006 - Tom E. Kelley & Albert Goodwyn, San Francisco Bay Times
" ... listening to the clear, open, melodic voice of LINDA KOSUT ... it's musical, it's lyrical ... on her ballads I wanted to dance a slow dance with a lithe and beautiful woman. The ballads work, the jazz works, and so do the side trips into country and comedic. Her band, led by Max Perkoff, is a perfectly-timed ensemble that gently lifts each song. Entertaining from start to finish." News & Reviews from New York, Performing Arts INSIDER, and lively-arts.com, Richmond Shepard
"Her radiant smile lights up the intimate space, immediately capturing the attention and hearts of her audience... she's the real thing...the multi-talented Kosut...has a fantastic sense of dynamics within her songs. She knows just when to play it small and quiet, and when to let 'er rip...a perfect accompaniment to dinner with friends." - San Francisco Bay Times, Tom W. Kelly
"Kosut can share more of her life in one song than three full hours of episodic television ... Singers such as Kosut are on their own, standing in the spotlight giving the audience that rare immediate intimacy that any good director or producer would envy to have for a show." - Jonathan Farrell, independent reporter, San Francisco
