Warm, Sassy Diva in "One Night With Fanny Brice"
"To portray the life of legendary musical theater performer Fanny Brice on stage requires confidence and nerve, as well as talent.
Not to worry — Kimberly Faye Greenberg is up to the task. She's sassy, lively and animated in the solo show, "One Night With Fanny Brice,"
Greenberg is close in appearance to Brice, with a similarly warm stage presence, mobile face, natural comedic talent and expressive way of singing. She artfully creates her own persona of Brice, a more down-to-earth, realistic depiction of a woman who was a determined, insecure, but irrepressible and unstoppable force of nature."
"Gets the vivacity and voice of Fanny Brice"
"It’s to the credit of the actress Kimberly Faye Greenberg and the writer-director-arranger Chip Deffaa — with help from the passing decades — that the solo show “One Night With Fanny Brice” ducks the formidably long shadow of Barbra Streisand and “Funny Girl,” the 1964 Broadway musical about Brice, the vaudevillian, Ziegfeld performer, comedian and radio star. "
