DIANE KETCHIE RAYMOND SAAR

"Diane Ketchie, in a stunning display of virtuosity, whizzes through difficult music and sings
beautifully. I can think of no one in the popular, Broadway or classical world
who can do all the things she does and do them so well."
-Bernard Holland, THE NEW YORK TIMES-

"At the core of the production are top-notched performances. Raymond Saar's robust tenor
is equally electric in his ballads and up-tempo numbers."
