Reviews are in for GUITAR GIRLS at FLORIDA STUDIO THEATRE!

“According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, “There is no denying the heart, passion, fire, and musical pleasures in[…]Guitar Girls.” The Observer calls it “Magical” and “Soulful.” The Venice Gondolier Sun claims that when Cat Greenfield takes the stage to perform “Me and Bobby McGee,” “It was as though Janis Joplin had returned to sing again.”

“Greenfield made her own magic on any stringed instrument in reach. (Her picture’s probably next to the word “vivacious” in the dictionary. “ -YouObserver

“[…] So does Cat Greenfield, especially when she performs “Me and Bobby McGee.” It was as though Janis Joplin had returned to sing again but in that wonderful cabaret space.” -Venice Gondolier Sun

““But these women went out and told their stories at a time when it wasn’t necessarily acceptable or appropriate to do so,” Greenfield said. “What do you do about family? I’m asked about this all the time. Would you have asked that of Elvis or Johnny Cash? They probably still ask Dolly (Parton), ‘When are you going to settle down?’ These women are so encouraging to me. Some of them decided, ‘I’m going to go home now or go have children now.’ But some of them just kept on performing because that’s what they do.” -Interview with the Herald Tribune

Woody Guthrie’s American Song a PBDW

Screen Shot 2018-08-11 at 10.43.26 PM

Cat had an amazing time performing in Woody Guthrie’s American Song at Palm Beach Dramaworks this summer! The show was so much fun, the team stellar, the audiences thrilling, and the reviews wonderful:

“Greenfield has a lovely bluegrass voice custom-made for plaintive songs.”Palm Beach Daily News

“But it isn’t the highlight of the show.

That occurs just after intermission, when singer-actor-musicians Cat Greenfield and Julie Rowe entwine their beautiful voices to deliver Guthrie’s haunting, heartbreaking 1944 song “Ludlow Massacre.”

The women recount Guthrie’s version of the tragic true story of a 1914 Colorado coal miners’ strike. Kicked out of company housing, the men and their families created a tent city that became home to 1,200 souls. Some two dozen people perished when members of the Colorado National Guard and guards from the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company fired on the camp with a machine gun and set fire to the tents, suffocating a group of women and children who were hidden away in a pit for their safety.

That story, as delivered by Greenfield and Rowe, is chilling, unbearably brutal yet vividly evocative, showcasing Guthrie’s extraordinary gifts as a songwriting activist.”South Florida Daily News

Cat loved being a part of such an important and timely piece of theatre, and hopes to revisit it again someday soon!

Reviews are rolling in for THAT GOLDEN GIRLS SHOW!

Screen Shot 2016-10-07 at 1.31.22 PM
“Far and away, there were two standout performances. It was if a recording of Rue McClanahan was being played as Cat Greenfield opened her mouth. Between the spot on physicalization and flawless Blanche dialect, cadence and all, Greenfield’s performance was one for the ages. It’s something you have to see to believe.” -Theater In The Now

“Greenfield’s Blanche is salaciously flirty and charismatic, her hyperbolic expressions and Southern drawl always hilarious, but never breaking character.” -NY Theatre Guide

That Golden Girls Show! A Puppet Parody by Jonathan Rockefeller. Photos by Russ Rowland (14)

Screen Shot 2016-10-07 at 1.29.29 PM
“In That Golden Girls Show! those hilarious broads are back, transformed into Avenue Q-like, rod Muppets (large heads, movable mouths, and only upper bodies and hands) manipulated by actors in black; puppet creator Joel Gennari does a great job directing their use. The actors, who perfectly synchronize their facial expressions and body movements with those of their avatars, and speak all their lines in character, include three women—Cat Greenfield as Blanche, Emmanuelle Zeesman as Sophia, Arlee Chadwick as Rose—and a man, Michael LaMasa (replacing Weston Chandler Long), as Dorothy. Bea Arthur, the original Dorothy was notably tall and mannish, so when LaMasa and his puppet enter and deliver a line in Arthur’s deadpan rasp, the laugh meter jumps. The accuracy with which the cast nails the originals’ distinctive vocal and physical mannerisms is the show’s most memorable feature.”

“And Cat Greenfield is an utter joy as Blanche, flawlessly evoking Rue McClanahan’s melodramatic musicality and Southern-fried insatiability, without losing sight of the needy, terrified woman within.” -Talkin’ Broadway

“Greenfield’s simpering Rue McClanahan is also a riot, especially after Blanche discovers her facelift has been botched. Everyone in the cast does a great job handling their puppets, displaying a specific relationship between puppet and performer that helps us accept that our protagonists are being carried around by black-clad manipulators three times their size.” -Theater Mania

NEW!!!! Review of Ring of Fire at OCT!

OCT Review (Click to enlarge.)

“I suppose it’s natural that the one woman in the show should steal every scene, especially if she is as talented as Catherine Greenfield. Not only does Cat play banjo, dulcimer, and mandolin, but she has the perfect voice for country singing. And her chemistry with Sean and Phillip is made more powerful by its subtlety.

Whether she is raising her voice in a spiritual like “The Far Side Banks of Jordan,” or a ballad like “All Over Again,” or joining Sean in “Ring of Fire,” Cat hits the mark every time. When she ended the comic ditty, “Flushed from the Bathroom of Your Heart,” by yodeling, something I’ve never cared for before, I found she could make even that truly beautiful.”
