CabaretScenesPizza on the Park - London, UK By Harold Sanditen

Any performer runs a major risk when he provides previous press quotes to a reviewer, or for that matter, any audience member. He has a lot to live up to in those quotes, and Craig Pomranz has quotes which even God Himself would envy.

I did get to see one cabaret show since Monday, and that was last nights show by Craig Pomranz at The Metropolitan Room at 7:30 pm. I must immediately add that musical director was Stephen Bocchino, who not only provided accompaniment, but also served as both foil and accomplice in much of the funny banter that spiced up the show. The show was also a celebration and release of Craig's long awaited new CD, titled MORE THAN A SEASONAL THING and the show included most of the songs from the album.

Craig Pomranz  'More Than A Seasonal Thing'  Metropolitan Room

I had heard the "buzz", read the "hype" and listened to his first CD and I was very anxious to see and hear Craig Pomranz perform in his latest outing at The Metropolitan Club in New York debuting the songs from a much anticipated new "concept" CD entitled "More Than A Seasonal Thing." As a performer, he proved himself to be a "triple threat," a "singer for all seasons," if you will, who has clearly earned the glowing reviews he's received since returning to the cabaret stage.

Tom Rolla's Gardenia Hollywood, CA

CabaretScenesCabaret Scenes by Elliot Zwiebach

Craig Pomranz makes an audience sigh at the sheer beauty with which he sings. It doesn’t happen just once or twice, as it’s bound to in a show by any decent singer.  It happens repeatedly — not only because of the precision and artistry with which he sings but also from the strong choices he makes in selecting material.

Craig Pomranz kind of sneaks up on an audience…
He's telling you stories in song - - caressing the lyrics ever-so-gently - - and before you know it, he's moved to a booming tenor that brings the song to a strong, powerful, satisfying climax. And then he does it again, and again - - and very effectively each time.

Craig Pomranz - Valentine's Day!

CabaretScenesCraig Pomranz - Valentine's Day! by Melody Breyer-Grell

February 14, 2009, Metropolitan Room  New York, NY
Craig Pomranz's Valentine's Day show was a lesson in the art of cabaret.  His beseeching opening, "Be Careful, It's My Heart," showed his intent of opening up his own heart to us in song and story.  A performer of unabashed sentimentality, he was equally humorous and gently witty.

BACKSTAGE "BEST"

BACKSTAGE "BEST" by Joe Regan, Jr.

Craig Pomranz has a long history in cabaret and supper clubs and has recently been playing to sold-out houses in Los Angeles at the Gardenia. Some months ago he did a show at the Metropolitan Room, and recently returned for a run which ends this Wednesday, August 6. It's an entirely new show (even from his recent Gardenia gig), and I have to tell you I saw Craig's show Wednesday, July 30 and an audience of various civilians (many of whom never had seen him before) stood up and cheered. I haven't seen spontaneous standing ovations like this at the Metropolitan Room except for Julie Wilson and Marilyn Maye. The only cabaret celebrities I spotted in the capacity crowd were Richard Skipper and Francesca Blumenthal.

JAZZ AROUND TOWN

Jazz Around Town by Scott Yanow

Craig Pomranz, a fine cabaret singer with a high tenor voice, performed at The Gardenia with solid and witty backing by pianist Steve Bocchino.  The one-hour cabaret show moved fast and featured concise interpretations of 28 songs, ranging from "You Stepped Out Of A Dream" and Cole Porter's "Throwing A Ball Tonight" to four songs dealing with flowers, violets and roses.  Filled with topical jokes and humor, the show was quite entertaining and found Craig Pomranz stretching himself into the Jazz World.

Craig Pomranz - More than just a pretty voice...

CabaretLondonCraig Pomranz - More than just a pretty voice...

Craig Pomranz combines the charm of the boy-next-door with a strong legit voice that is destined to lead him to Broadway musical comedy. It's a securely placed, well-trained and pleasing sound that reaches for the stratosphere of the tenor register without ever straining.
