"Part cabaret act, part performance art, part sendup of the trappings of celebrity and the conventions of show business, and, perhaps the most intriguing of all, part affirmation and heartfelt celebration of theatre's power to lodge in our souls."
“Excuse me, but you look amazing. Are you performing tonight? Oh, girl, you should be!”
""An Audience with Meow Meow" will have you in fits of laughter one minute and in stunned silence as human truths are revealed the next. It is a splendid mash-up of cabaret, vaudeville, camp, and documentary about the life and purpose of entertainers."
"It is possibly the performance of the season"
"The audience plays nearly as big a part in this show as Ms. Meow herself."
"You'd better get your tickets soon"
"Meow Meow is without pretense, naked so to speak before us, as she puts herself out there without a net"
"From her entrance to her spectacular and invasive exit, she defied expectations."
"takes enormous risks"
"invigorating and intoxicating as cat nip."
SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS
“This is musical theater as an act of subversion in fishnets and heels. Ferociously entertaining...Meow Meow stuns and delights!”
“Imagine Dame Edna crossed with Hedwig and Ute Lemper in a gleefully bawdy lounge act…There’s no denying the allure of Meow Meow’s purrfectly calibrated diva persona. The Weimar-style vamp-cum-comedian fancies herself the ‘Mother Courage of performance art.’ Armed with an impressive voice and limber stage antics, she seems to be giving her all to tickle us, and that’s hard to resist.”
THE HUFFINGTON POST
"A comic who draws roars from pratfall, subtle glances, punchlines and sensuality"
“She's bawdy and brash, tender and vulnerable; she's graceful and klutzy, commanding and helpless. She's a singer who hits every vocal nuance, whether serious or satiric; a high-energy dancer who could probably double as a contortionist; a comic who draws roars from pratfalls, subtle glances, punchlines and sensuality. She calls herself Meow Meow and – need I say this after that lead-in – she's wonderful.”
THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
“She’s a picture of alluring grace one moment and a klutz clambering up on stage the next, with the funniest way of getting up out of a split that I’ve ever seen."
