“Absolutely exquisite in every way…Tortora has the old school moxie that any of us born and raised in the boroughs know and love. There’s an honesty and quality surrounding her that makes you a part of her family…And then there’s Tortora’s magnificent voice!” ~

“A vivid re-creation of a very specific time, place, and culture in American history…a story full of heritage, humor, heart, and happy endings.” ~

“One of the most original, authentic, and real stories being told on the cabaret stages today…the show to see this season.” ~

“A warm and often hilarious account of growing up with a Brooklyn bookie dad.” ~
