“Abrams is a top-tier satirical songwriter — at her best, she approaches the genius of Tom Lehrer and is easily the equal of the formidable John Forster. And she’s a prodigious pianist… ” Barry Willis, Marin Independent Journal
“Abrams’ songs are production’s standouts.” Steven Winn, San Francisco Chronicle
