Rachael Sage’s talent and “what’s a Jewish girl to do?” observations…could turn out to be the unlikely hit of Fringe” -The Herald (Edinburgh)
“Sage’s songs blend old-world melodies with whimsical riffs, implanting both modern themes and painful historical events. The resulting sound…boldly recalls a rich Jewish cultural heritage.” -Forward
“Sage (is) the Jewish Norah Jones” -Washington Jewish Week
Local art-pop songstress Rachael Sage brings her campy, inspiring ‘Songs For Sexy Yentas!’ to Baruch Performing Arts Center, accompanied by cellist Ward Williams (Brandi Carlile, Howie Day) and violinist Rachel Golub (Elton John, Lady Gaga).
Sage’s latest musical hijinks will feature Sage’s quirky theatricality at its best – an upbeat evening of vaudevillian shtick, playful Yiddishkeit, tall tales, pianistic flair and hilarious, written-on-the-spot, topical compositions.
Sage will weave songs from her ten-album discography with shpiel about her life as a former ballerina, adventures on the road, and her family’s often unusual insights on what it takes to be an intelligent, empowered but still Nice Jewish Girl in today’s chaotic world. Her Edinburgh Fringe Festival one-woman shows, her many previous Joe’s Pub appearances, and her acting background (she studied at The Actors Studio and The New York Shakespeare Lab at The Public Theater), all combine to create a singer-songwriter with a compelling stage presence.
