What the critics say about Ruth Carlin:

Here's what Joe Regan Jr. had to say: 

About the show:

"It is unquestionably one of the best cabaret shows of the year."

About Pirate Jenny:

"Carlin’s acting and singing brought bravos from the audience."

 About Both Sides Now:

"Carlin sang it tenderly and meaningfully, making you think you had never heard all those great lyrics ever before."



What critics are saying about "A Light in the Window - Songs of Judy Collins":

"Ruth offered an evening that would delight any fan of Ms. Collins - and any lover of the songs of the great "singer-songwriter" era."

Stu Hamstra in Cabaret Hotline

"She breathed fresh air into Sondheim's "Send in the Clowns."  Her delicate vibrato added a lot to the oft overplayed Collins hit." 

"I would recommend this show to a Collins lover for the sake of hearing your favorites sung by someone who really cares about this music and its meaning."

Danielle Micelli in NY Cabaret Today


"Her simple and clear tone truly has the ability, like Collins, to convey a story. However, never does Carlin try to mimic Collins' tone." 

"The song selection is lovely--everything from Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne" to Jimmy Webb's "The Moon's a Harsh Mistress." Yet, what sells the show isn't the material, but Carlin's sincerity." 

"It's obvious she wants to give the audience nothing but her best, and at the same time she's also giving them a master class in how succeed in doing something you love."

Dustin Fitzharris in NiteLifeExchange
