Stellar ... enchanting ... Oberlin's winsome voice and delicate phrasing are a perfect match for Previn's compositions. [She] will entertain you so thoroughly that you'll actually come away believing that Previn was--or, at least should have been--as popular as Richard Rodgers"--Barbara & Scott Siegel, Two of Clubs, TalkinBroadway.com
The Bistro Award-winning singer brings her already highly-acclaimed new show, Like Love: The Popular Songs of Andre Previn" to the Metropolitan Room for four shows only. Audiences will be delighted and surprised by this varied collection of extraordinary songs -- some beloved, some virtually unknown, by a master composer who defies category. Lyricists Johnny Mercer, Alan Jay Lerner, the Bergmans, Comden and Green and Dory Langdon (Previn) joined Andre Previn to create the stuff of a show rich with complex emotions, substance, and delicious wit.
A bright, clear voice and sensual charm ... Oberlin has a distinctive sound and phrases sumptuous evergreens with a fresh and appealing approach. [She]invests ballads with a breathless intimacy and lays the allure at the listener's feet"--Robert L. Daniels, Daily Variety
