Barry Kleinbort’s one-woman musical starring Penny Fuller was a smash hit at the prestigious 59E59 Theatre in New York City. Now, Kleinbort’s humorous and provocative score and Fuller’s bravura performance have been captured in their entirety on this remarkable CD.
The show received rave reviews from the critics:
“Penny Fuller does a beautiful job. The music is melodic, and the lyrics are clever and often poignant” – New York Times
“Mr. Kleinbort’s music…handily serves the gorgeous twists and turns of his distinguished book and this delectable tale of love, loss and redemption.”
“Penny Fuller is a strong actress with a gorgeous singing voice. Whether she is engulfing the audience with her words or belting out a tune… Penny commanded the stage.”
“The creator, Kleinbort, and the interpreter, Fuller, share a rare unity of vision that completely ensnares the viewer.”
“Go with a loved one, celebrate your time together… and enjoy the wonderful gifts of Penny Fuller.”
“Kleinbort’s music crosses several genres. He has calypso meet rock and roll. His lyrics are chatty and clever, and sometimes quite moving. The songs are so well integrated into the play they seem almost like musical musings.”
The rave reviews speak for themselves. Harbinger Records is pleased to present this remarkable recording for the first time.
