HIT SHOW IS OFF TO NYC – By E.M. Fredric
Hollywood, CA (The Hollywood Times) 10/23/18 – 18 Minutes of Fame and her star – Barbara Minkus – are heading to The Triad in New York City for three exclusive dates, November 10, 11 & 12th! The show originated four years ago with director and collaborator, Susan Morgenstern – then took flight with extended stays at the Santa Monica Playhouse in 2017’s 5-month run under the title: I’m Not Famous: A Musical Journey with Barbara Minkus as a resounding hit.
The director states, “The two letters in the Hebrew word chai, add up to 18 in Jewish numerology, so the number 18 is connected to life, good fortune , and the reminder to value the time you have on earth – not to simply exist but to work, struggle, laugh, cry, smile and love. That’s what our show is about!”
Minkus, a tiny woman, bursts forth with a breathtaking energy that is both mesmerizing and comforting – she has over 7 decades in the business to draw from. Barbara lures her audience in song and in tales of growing up in a different time – with the reminders that we all have the same feelings and needs, no matter our age.
Accompanied by pianist Ron Barnett – the duo bounce off one another like they’ve been partners for years. If the show comes back to LA for any run – go see it.
This dynamo excels and is a woman to be reckoned with! Brava Ms. Minkus, brava!
