THE THEATER MIRROR – BOSTON – “…her final rendition of ‘Memory’ was phenomenal… the theater seemed to levitate. Singer and song were one, and we in the audience clung achingly to that voice, suspended with longing somewhere above that stage.”
PETER ZIMMERMAN, WOLF TRAP FOUNDATION, Vienna, VA :“Jeri was the highlight of Wolf Trap’s Cabaret Series… what a performer in Jeri Sager! Her funny and insightful banter was only outdone by her glorious voice and stage presence.
