What the critics have said:

“…a pert Francesca Amari turned “What I Did for Love” into a boldly fervent Broadway reflection.” -Variety

“Amari is a sparkling package of perky precision & vocal dynamite who seems capable of nailing any type of song she tries.” CabaretScenes Magazine

“Ms. Amari, with an abundance of self-reflective wit, and consummate vocal skill, brought us to the heart of the mystery of how and why musicians can be such a powerful force in our lives. (Her show is a) fearless celebration of her alleged squareness.” -Cabaret Nightlife Exchange
