"Well, it’s been quite a year for Julie Benko, hasn’t it? The story of the Funny Girl revival is already a part of theatrical legend, and it is pretty well understood that Julie Benko is the star who was born of the entire Funny Girl trajectory. The singing actress has emerged as a force with which to be reckoned, with a new Broadway show, a CD recorded with husband Jason Yeager, a holiday EP on the way, one of the best social media platforms in the industry, and a nightclub career that is snowballing into one of the great happenings of the 2022-2023 season. Julie Benko is a star, right and proper, and we all watched it happen in real time, and we all benefit from her new standing in the community, but ESPECIALLY the patrons of the nightclub scene."
"Ms. Benko shines even more brightly playing herself on the cabaret stage, where she can... fully flex and show off her considerable vocal abilities and innate sense of musicality. The singing actress is a natural jazz singer, and it was a pleasure to hear her let loose... Throughout, Ms. Benko’s instrument — which is capable of both sweetness and sass — was controlled yet pliable, and wielded with great intelligence and finesse... Ms. Benko’s rapport with the audience was a great treat. Over the course of the evening, her banter was cool and engaging, and her occasional off-the-cuff comic remarks would have made Fanny Brice proud."
