Of her recent performance in Grey Gardens;… the potent emotional undertow of this production… has everything to do with the formidable Betty Buckley, whose determinedly cheerful, thoroughly heart-bruising Edith will win you over, pull you under and cast you out to sea.”

About her newest album Ghostlight produced by T Bone Burnett: “The main attraction at any of her performances is the voice and sensibility of an interpreter who can take you to the center of the earth all be herself.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times, Oct. 2014

 Here’s an opportunity to work with one of the great artists of our time! “— Terry Schreiber
