Stephen Holden in The New York Times: “The gifted young cabaret singer Jennifer Sheehan… presented a smart, far reaching show… Her strong, supple soprano is matched by an attunement to the dramatic arc of song lyrics… Young, good-looking and very astute, Ms. Sheehan gives you hope.”
Cabaret Scenes: “Jennifer Sheehan definitely makes her audience love her. (The show) is a classy showcase for Sheehan’s well-trained soprano clarity, her sense of fun, graceful movements, and movie-star glamour. This is someone cabaret aficionados should be proud to call their own. She has moved to the top run of charmers…. Jennifer Sheehan has got that Cole Porter ‘certain thing’ – special, sensational, smashing.”
Woman Around Town: “Jennifer Sheehan has remarkable presence, flair, range, and talent. Engaging and genuine, she connects with her audience (another art too many singers don’t understand)… With the gift of contagious joy, this accomplished young singer sends us out into the night with warm, satisfied smiles.”
