Praise for Neil Berg’s 100 Years of Broadway:
According to San Francisco’s KABC radio theater critic, Jerry Friedman, “This revue features some of the best songs from the Broadway musicals, all sung by some of the most talented performers working today singing many of the hit songs that they have sung on Broadway.”
“The Great White Way stretched all the way to Bass Performance Hall Wednesday night via Neil Berg’s Neil Berg’s 100 Years of Broadway – a breezy, sprawling revue that romped gleefully through the American musical theater’s greatest hits. Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Leonard Bernstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Frank Loesser and (reflecting recent trends on Broadway) Billy Joel and Frankie Valli among many others, all got the nod. The three men and two women carrying the vocal load boasted impressive musical stage credentials, and the all lived up to their bios.” – Punch Shaw, Ft. Worth Star-Telegram
"Broadway tunes leave audience with an enchanted evening. Neil berg is a powerful, kinetic pianist with a load of chops. He also writes music for Broadway and Off-Broadway shows. What (makes) Berg's production was the quality of the performers and the arrangements. The singers were excellent. Berg creates a well-balanced blend of the sublime and the lighthearted..” – Buffalo News
