Stephen Holden on Andrea Marcovicci

The NYTimes on Marcovicci’s new Mercer show: “To attend an Andrea Marcovicci cabaret show is to participate in a communal rite in which it is tacitly understood — at least during the duration of the performance — that nothing today can match the magic and romance of old Hollywood and Broadway. An audience of a certain age agrees to gorge retrospectively on the illusions of youth from an era long before the proliferation of viral gossip and reality television. As the ceremonial priestess, Ms. Marcovicci plays a grand, smiling Hollywood hostess — a Loretta Young-like figure — throwing open doors to a rose-colored mythology.”
