Press Releases and Show Reviews

By: Stu Hamstra

Reagan Stone made her cabaret debut at DON'T TELL MAMA (343 West 46th Street, NYC - 1.212.757.0788 - last night (July 2nd) and I was so happy to have been there - and am happy to be the first reviewer to see the show. With David Brunetti as musical director and Scott Barnes as director, Ms. Stone was in good hands! Her show was a delightful presentation of cabaret standards, with a few new songs interspersed. But it was Ms. Stone's vocals and performance that really thrilled me. Clear and true to the lyric, her very defiant rendering of Jason Robert Brown's "I'm Not Afraid" was one of the highlights of the show. As Ms. Stone explained near the end of the hour, she is suffering from a progressive retinal disease, and hoped to raise awareness of this malady through her performances. Always bright as sunshine, and occasionally slipping into her native Southern accent, she charmed the audience with her quick wit and clever patter. Her closing song was David Friedman's "Help Is On The Way." This is one debut I will long remember.

Reagan Stone has two more shows scheduled at DON'T TELL MAMA (343 West 46th Street, NYC - 1.212.757.0788 - - Sunday, July 13th at 5:00 pm and Friday, August 1st at 7:00 pm.

I strongly suggest you make a reservation soon - once word gets out about this terrific show, seats will be hard to find.
