"Patton’s stage persona is that of a good-time gal—a woman who’s
always game for a fling. Good naughty fun is on her agenda . . . Her
singing voice is a perfectly fine instrument for the mildly jokey,
occasionally racy repertoire. She can—and more than once does—turn a
note into a throaty growl, suggesting the love call of a pussycat on the
prowl . . . On Sondheim’s torchy “Losing My Mind” from Follies, Patton
provides some welcome emotional complexity, and her understated, engaged
performance seems to show the darker aspects of her party-girl
character’s psyche. She sings the last line of the song a cappella,
creating an effective moment of naked vulnerability."
“It takes a woman of considerable wit, style, and maturity to
tackle (let alone celebrate) the subject matter of men. In her new show,
Charlotte Patton possesses all those traits as she leads us on her
guided tour of all the various male idiosyncrasies that can drive a
woman wild--or mad.”
“Patton did an act that was as close to perfection as a cabaret
can achieve. . . . each standard that Patton sang was a superbly acted
one-act play framed by her perfect phrasing . . .
Patton’s acting performance was both heartbreakingly sad and funny!”
“Patton’s voice is smooth and smart . . .
she wins by force of her personality, wit and charm.”
