The Sunday Mail (*****) Awarded 5 stars
June 18, 2006 (only Artist at Fest to receive 5 stars)
Christine Andreas is a class act. You will not see a greater female talent at this festival, or on any other world stage. Her stunning tribute to great music and Broadway's leading ladies was breathtaking in it's quality, precision, power passion and intimacy.
Andreas seduces her audience with an honesty, integrity, self-deprecating wit and scent of sexuality that would make anyone gladly fly to the moon with her. She can swing from sensual soprano to killer queen in a heartbeat, from the White House to the Great White Way.
Her heartfelt tributes to her Broadway heroines in Streisand, Andews and Merman were thrilling, but what would we have given to see her in "The Scarlet Pimpernel"?
Superbly supported and joined by her husband, accompanist and happy guardian, Marty Silvestri, Andreas proves by her unforgettable presence that the cabaret festival has reached the pinnacle of the art form. She has to come back next year and she will fill the Festival Theatre. I bet she and Mandy Patinkin would sing together very sweetly".
