Reviews of KT Sullivan:
• The New Yorker: “As vocally, comically and theatrically assured as contemporary cabaret performers get.”
• Wall Street Journal: “Too much of a good thing is simply wonderful. That’s KT Sullivan all over.”
• Stephen Holden, The New York Times: “One of the pleasures of cabaret reviewing over the long haul has been to observe the evolution of KT Sullivan from an effervescent musical comedian into the increasingly fearless and complex singing character actor she is today… Ms. Sullivan’s natural ebullience and perfect comic timing transport you to a blissful plateau.”
• Cabaret Scenes: “With the slightest lift of the eyebrows, most subtle tilt of the head, KT Sullivan communicates her songs with singular understanding. At this point in her career, she is a standard of interpretation. She does breezy comedy better than almost any singer around, using her expressive face, precise timing and immaculate phrasing and vocal stress.”
