As stunning visually as she is vocally, singer/actress Karen Akers is universally considered this generation’s “Cabaret Goddess.” Just as highly regarded in the Theatre (nominated for a Tony in Nine) and in Film (The Purple Rose of Cairo, Heartburn), she’s never been more captivating than in this live full-length concert DVD.


“I like to tell stories,” says Akers. She personalizes her memorable repertoire (from masters like Sondheim, Brel, Peter Allen, Andrew Lloyd Webber to newcomers whose names you’ll want to remember) into remarkable minidramas of love and life…universal enough for all of us to relate to, yet individual enough to be hers alone.

 

“ …the power of Streisand, the dark passion of Piaf, the lean irony of Dietrich, but a voice uniquely her own…” - The Los Angeles Examiner


“Her stage presence and voice are addictive… An intimacy that takes your breath away!” - The Washington Times


“The quintessential cabaret art singer…” – The New York Times


V.I.E.W. proudly presents “Karen Akers: On Stage At Wolf Trap,” which another reviewer advised, “…You better grab this one…” Just one dose of the Akers experience and you’ll never hear cabaret the same way again.
