“Just as the Broadway theater season is drawing to its close, a smashing little show has arrived to remind us of why so many of us keep going back to Broadway.  I can’t think of another production in recent years that captures and explains so affectingly the essence and allure of musicals, and why they’re such an indispensable part of the New York landscape.  Written by Dick Scanlan and Ms. Scott, and directed with virtuoso efficiency and wit by Michael Mayer.  Ms. Scott performs with the sophistication that a New York audience (or rather an audience of New Yorkers) demands. And there’s no denying that when she sings, from a wildly diverse song list, she’s polished and inventive. Ms. Scott naturally translates life size into bigger than life.  The orchestrations and arrangements for the first-rate onstage band are by Tom Kitt (the composer of Next to Normal). And her director is, remember, Mr. Mayer, the man who staged “Spring Awakening” and this season’s American Idiot.  What Ms. Scott and her team summon here is that strange alchemy of ego, hunger, desperation and mysticism that infuses every great Broadway performance. Ms. Scott has never shined brighter or more illuminatingly.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times READ HERE

“Sherie Rene Scott’s Everyday Rapture is a tuneful and witty autobiographical musical.  With those doleful eyes, that wide permafrost smile set at a perpetual three-minutes-to-irony, and a crinkly mezzo that slingshots from brassy to bruised, Sherie Rene Scott (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Aida) has steadily established herself as New York’s leading comic divette. Does that mean we care about her life? Scott, smartly, assumes we don’t.  Scott uses the blimp-hangar that is the American Airlines Theatre as an echo chamber for her wit, backed by her “Mennonettes” and an eclectic set list that ranges from Judy Garland to Tom Waits to, yes, an erotic Mr. Rogers tribute medley. Tom Kitt’s typically brilliant arrangements are half the reason for showing up; the other half is Scott, whose lambent ease with the absurd (cleverly refined by director Michael Mayer and book co-writer Dick Scanlan) makes Everyday much more than just another maudlin auto-cabaret.” Scott Brown, New York Magazine READ HERE
