Bailey's Bundles - All About Jazz
Five Artists: Notable And Nearly Missed


The classically trained Jennifer Roberts has her roots in musical theater, a style she dynamically applies to the eclectic mix of numbers on her debut CD, An Evening with Jennifer Roberts. The title comes from her cabaret show of the same name––one of three she’s mounted––which she’d been taking to club rooms for the...


Theatre Pizzazz CD Review: by Marilyn Lester

Upon hearing the very first track on the CD "An Evening With Jennifer Roberts" it becomes readily apparent that this is going to be an unusually good record, and by the end of that opening track, the listener will find his or herself swaying, smiling and lost in what can only be labeled a perfect opening number. People unfamiliar with Ms. Roberts' work might be initially...


Broadway World CD Review: by Stephen Mosher

When Jennifer Roberts takes the stage, you are struck with several thoughts. One: this is a lady who belongs onstage. It is her comfort arena. She is relaxed, confident and immediately puts the audience at ease. Two: when she opens her mouth, you’re enveloped in a glorious voice. A voice that can go anywhere she needs or wants to go. The sound is at once rich & sweet...


Cabaret Hotspot: Sheldon Harnick
Show Review: by Thomas Mills

If you are a fan of the "Broadway" style and musicals, as we are, at the editorial offices of Bayou Blue Radio and Paris-Move, you will enjoy this album by Jennifer Roberts (singer and actress). Perfect and the joy of life, this is what comes out when listening to this album with syrupy jazz, which makes you want to settle in a concert hall and watch/listen to Jennifer Roberts who...


Bayou Blue Radio and Paris-Move:
An Evening with Jennifer Roberts CD Review

It's easy listening when Jennifer Roberts sings, as I found when encountering her for the first time in her "An Evening with Jennifer Roberts" act at Don't Tell Mama, one of New York's busy cabaret venues (April 21 and 22, 2003). She is luminous as she takes the mike and moves confidently through a well-chose repertoire ideally suited for her well-trained voice and warm...


First NYC Cabaret Show Review: By William Wolf

Following some successful off-Broadway cabaret
performances of “An Evening With Jennifer Roberts”, Jennifer thought it was time to finally go into a studio and record it for CD. With the genius of pianist and arranger Tedd Firth, Ms. Roberts has herself a 15-song gem of a CD. She starts and finishes with some traveling songs. Opening with “Clamorous Life"...


InTune International: An Evening with Jennifer Roberts CD Review: by Dan Singer

Sometimes it takes a while for a singer to find the confidence and opportunity to get into a studio to make a recording. There were eleven years between the time that Jennifer Roberts, an actress and singer with extensive experience in musical theater, and a variety of film, television and commercial roles, performed her initial New York City cabaret show, and the point at...


Jersey Jazz CD Review: by Joe Lang

Lyricist Sheldon Harnick, who will turn 92 on April 30, could hardly have asked for a more exuberant or heartfelt early birthday celebration than the one Jennifer Roberts threw for him in the form of her show at Don’t Tell Mama, “Jennifer Roberts: She Loves…Sheldon!” Her upfront fan-girl enthusiasm for her favorite lyric writer, dating back to well before she played the leading role of Amalia in She Loves...

Turn in your plane tickets to New York to see 'Guys and Dolls.' Broadway came to the Barn Theater Tuesday with its sparkling new production of the American musical classic. No need to travel beyond Augusta. 

Actor Tom Wopat starred and directed, buoyed by an exceptionally able cast and technical staff. Frank...


'Guys and Dolls' has New York Quality: by C.J. Gianakaris

Tom Wopat pays what he owes. Wopat, who starred as Luke Duke in the 'Dukes of Hazard' in the early '80's, returns as often as his schedule permits to the Barn Theatre in Augusta where he trained in its apprentice program in 1976 and 1977...
