Stephen Holden on Claire Martin

The NYTimes reviews Claire Martin and (Sir) Richard Rodney Bennett doing their Cy Coleman show at the Algonquin: “The show concentrates on Coleman’s early work, in which his elaborately syncopated melodies (“Witchcraft” and “The Best Is Yet to Come” are the most famous) and the sly, insinuating lyrics by Ms. Leigh and others constitute high-style songwriting repartee. And Ms. Martin’s subtle, beautifully acted interpretations give them their due.”


One Response to Stephen Holden on Claire Martin

  1. I was there on opening night. Claire Martin and Sir Richard Rodney Bennett are indeed a most formidable team. Definitely worth breaking the bank to see them.
