By popular demand, Bistro Award-winning jazz-pop singer Karen Oberlin returns to The Metropolitan Room for one night only with her highly acclaimed show, “Like Love: The Popular Songs of Andre Previn," for which she was a finalist for the critics' Nightlife Awards in 2007. 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 Dory Langdon (Previn), Johnny Mercer, Alan Jay Lerner, the Bergmans, Comden and Green and others, joined Andre Previn to create the stuff of a show rich with complex emotions, substance, and delicious wit. Arrangements, musical direction and accompaniment by the incomparable Tedd Firth joined by Sean Smith on bass.



About this show, the critics say...

“Ms. Oberlin's vocals can only be described as heavenly, and her flawless performance made for a fascinating look at the Previn songbook. You simply must see and hear (this show)... (It) is perfection, and Ms. Oberlin's silk-smooth vocals and the wonderful Previn tunes, along with some very interesting background information, make this one of the fine-crafted performances that only cabaret can deliver." -- Stu Hamstra, Cabaret Hotline Online

“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

“Like Love" is unique, not only because of the intriguing lineup of Previn tunes... but Oberlin brings each to life with its own story. She has a vocal tone like silk chiffon, light and floating, sometimes aiming for the heights, sometimes settling down to earth. What sets it flowing is an evocation of the story, her voice taking on nuances to set the moods -- (her voice is) as communicative as the lyrics... Oberlin's patter is kept tight and relevant, with space for her own personality and humor to shine through." -- Elizabeth Ahlfors, Cabaret Scenes
