Description

With touches of Liberace and Victor Borge, this world-touring US pianist/singer is a classical concert artist gone rogue. Combining virtuosic technique with vivacious comedy (and feathers), she covers Beethoven to Broadway, pop to Paganini, ragtime to rock'n'roll. 'A seasoned entertainer who has not forgotten how to entertain' (TheatrePress.com.au). ‘Imagine if Bette Midler and Liberace had a love child... this woman can play the piano... with every part of her body!’ **** (BroadwayBaby.com). ‘From classical to blues... ragtime, Beethoven, ABBA, Van Halen, Jerry Lee Lewis, and back again!’ (RipItUp.com). 'One heck of a pianist' **** (TheatreGuide.com.au).

Ms. Abler is well intended... but she essentially just sets her (somewhat narcissistic) Wikipedia page to a mishmash of medleys. There is no real coherence to the show, even though she’s clearly passionate about piano. This is a show in need of a director- and a rewrite. The classical piano pieces played are in the standard repertoire of any piano student, and the pop melodies are somewhat messy. The script and the singing need help. The comparisons to Bette, Liberace, Jerry Lee Lewis, and the (incomparable) Victor Borge are wildly misplaced.
