Notes and Editorial Reviews

Angelina Reaux, like her obvious role model Teresa Stratas, is a singer with unusually strong dramatic instincts... In Stranger Here Myself, her widely praised show of Kurt Weill songs at the Public Theater last season, Ms. Reaux's sumptuous voice and theatricality combined to weave very disparate material into a compelling portrait of a woman at the end of her tether raking through memories and dreams alone in a hotel room.

– Stephen Holden, The New York Times [2/18/1990], reviewing the stage show Stranger Here Myself, produced by Joseph Papp
