❖ ❖ ❖

Damon Kirsche was in glorious voice and provided that sparkle of old Broadway / Hollywood glamour that makes every role he takes on magical... I’m still waiting for someone to write him a role set in the 1920s/’30s that captures all of the things he does so well and lets him put his stamp on an original character.” 
- Ellen Dostal, BroadwayWorld

“Bruce Kimmel’s winning Kritzerland formula: talented singers, special guest stars and entertaining narration by Kimmel himself.”

–  Les Traub, Cabaret Scenes

“Once again the inimitable Bruce Kimmel has brought together a group of superior singers to present an informative, delightful, musically satisfying evening of song.” 
— Robert Machray, Stage Happenings
