ACCLAIM FOR PROHIBITION
“Guest vocalists Madison Claire Parks, Bronson Norris Murphy and Myra Maud played the roles of ingénue, dapper young man and cabaret star in the modest story line threaded through the evening’s music. Murphy nailed the period crooner style, sounding much of the time like he was singing through a tube radio. As the cabaret star, Maud, born in Paris herself, invested “La Vie en Rose” and a solo version of “Bei Mir Bist du Schön” with big personality as well as a commanding voice.”
– Jim Higgins, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
