Saturday, February 15, 2014

This March, Broadway star, Christine Andreas will wow Lyric audiences with "Here's to the Ladies",  her tribute to the great ladies of the Great White Way -- Mary Martin, Ethel Merman, Julie Andrews, Barbra Streisand, Angela Lansbury and more -- laced with anecdotes about these sparkling stars of Broadway.Christine Andreas's heritage as a true Broadway diva extends from her award-winning portrayal of Eliza Doolittle in the 20th anniversary revival of My Fair Lady to the runaway Broadway hit, La Cage Aux Folles. 
"Not all ingénues grow up gracefully. But Broadway and cabaret star Andreas' tangy soprano has matured into an eclectic, appealing instrument that is well suited to most of the standards and showstoppers featured here."
- Elysa Gardner, USA Today

"Christine Andreas has accomplished the remarkable feat of making us recall each great star she honors on this album and then, at the same time, making us forget them as we listen to her fresh, new, exciting and often breathtaking interpretations of their songs.  Here's to the dazzling!"
- Jerry Herman, August, 2002

"A blend of lyricism and sweet sensuality that only the finest Broadway voices can conjure.  Although Ms. Andreas can be witty and playful, it is on the ballads (especially "They Say It's Wonderful" and "Bill") in which she delicately kills with the sheer beauty of her voice."
- Stephen Holden, The New York Times
