"Every cabaret show worth seeing has at least one number that moves you to tremble and shake like a dog coming in from the rain…For Marieann Meringolo it’s ‘I Was Born In Love With You’, if you don’t do it brilliantly it isn’t worth doing at all. Ms. Meringolo’s powerhouse interpretation makes full use of the dramatic Bergman lyric and the adventurous Legrand melody."
- Will Friedwald, Wall Street Journal
"The elegant velvety sound of Meringolo places her in a league with the aforementioned greats. Meringolo brings joy, confidence, power and an informed consciousness to these songs…
Rush to get seats!"
- Larry Myers, Nitelifeexchange.com
"Spot on in pitch...Her delivery of these songs demonstrated complete understanding of the lyrics and effortless phrasing."
- Kathryn Kitt, TheaterPizzaz.com
"An artist with a Spectacular voice! Marieann Meringolo’s The Songs of Alan & Marilyn Bergman was a beautiful display of sound and meaning coming together."
-Joel Benjamin, Cabaret Scenes
"Marieann Meringolo Soars…I witnessed an artist, who with guidance and luck will be selling out clubs and concert stages in the years to come. If I were you, I’d get to Feinstein’s while the getting is good to see the beginning of what’s clearly a new chapter in her career. The Lady has an extraordinary voice."
– Alix Cohen, Woman Around Town
"The Miracle at Feinstein’s…Marieann Meringolo impressed me so much that from now on I’m calling her MM2 because I feel she is to singing what Marilyn Monroe was to sex…She, the Bergmans and Legrand are a grand Combination – a match made in heaven that produces heaven on earth...If you miss her, it’ll be a sin."
– Myra Chanin, Times Square Chronicles
"Streisand’s influence can be felt in her tone and phrasing…but there are other echoes here as well: Piaf’s soldierly pathos, Sinatra’s cinematic sense of narrative. These colors blend with Meringolo’s own warm personality to create a rich vocal palette…Musically she delivers exactly what the Legrand songbook calls for."
– Ethan Kanfer, Show Business
"Meringolo Brings Drama To Legrand Songs…Legrand famous for music for such films as ‘The Umbrellas of Cherbourg,’ ‘The Thomas Crown Affair,’ and ‘Yentl,’ needs someone like Meringolo to provide the dramatic interpretation of his muse."
– Lucy Komisar, New York Theatre Wire
"Believe In Spring…You Must Believe In Spring is Marieann Meringolo’s latest cabaret production and it is vital, moving and brilliantly conceived and arranged. Ms. Meringolo draws you in and her voice holds you captive till she’s through. The featured composer is Michel Legrand and the pairing of Ms. Meringolo with this music is as natural as breathing."
– Sherri Rase, Q onStage
"Marieann has one of THE most beautiful voices in the business. This voice, combined with this program of some of the best songs ever written will go down as one of my favorite shows of all time. I would have stayed for a second show of the same program just to hear this program and this voice again. GO SEE THIS SHOW!"
– Sue Matsuki, Cabaret Hotline Online
"Several years ago, I praised Marieann Meringolo’s poise, rich vocal power, and dynamic renditions. After seeing her current show at Feinstein’s, let’s raise that a notch or more…Meringolo is a sophisticated performer who demonstrates an appreciation of both lyrics and the melodies. She delivers her interpretations of Legrand’s music with honesty and passion. She proves again that she can thrill listeners as few others do, even some who’ve attained greater prominence."
- Elizabeth Ahlfors, Bistro Awards
"She’s fantastic, shades of Streisand and Nancy Lamott with a whole lot of Meringolo swing. I loved everything about her, personality, jazz feel, and musically confident presentation…Reminding me so much of Barbara & Nancy. Another observation, the best singers always seem to have the most creative pianists as musical directors. This was no exception. Doyle Newmyer had great arrangements of some of my favorite tunes. You’re Crazy if you don’t catch her."
-Stephen Sorokoff, Times Square Chronicles
"Marieann Meringolo delivers songs about love lost and strength found.
‘Meadowlark,’ the Stephen Schwartz ballad from the musical The Baker’s Wife…Needs a substantial voice to do it justice, and on a recent night, Marieann Meringolo, a singer who bears some physical and vocal resemblance to Barbra Streisand, delivered one of the two or three strongest renditions I can remember."
- Stephen Holden, The New York Times
