Music is thought, and vibration. It exists inside each of us. It exists around all of us. It never leaves us. Music has no judgment. Music has no limits. Music needs no translation. Music is ageless. Music is healthy. Music is strong. Music is powerful. Music is personal and private, and music is the ultimate connector. Music is prayer. Music is science and spirit and magic all at the same time. Music is timeless. Skill and knowledge and experience are secondary, because music is available to us all. Always. Music is breath, and and as long as we live, we will always have breath, so we will always have music. Music belongs to us all.” - Gretchen Reinhagen, 2021

Latest work in progress

Our next performance will be an invited studio audience, as we workshop our next draft and look forward to establishing a run and tour of this show. Producers, Agents, Managers, Bookers, Industry Professionals one-and-all, and probably even my mother, are all invited. Reach out to Gretchen if you'd like to ensure your seat at the party.

Our sold out debut workshop performance of "How Musical Theater Ruined My Life" was a hit! Stay tuned for more information on upcoming performances, revisions, and all cool stuff like that. Just as soon as I pay the rent. Here's what a few folks had to say!

 "As an artist, Gretchen is one of the biggest risk-takers I know. Whether she's being funny or serious, she is always seeking the truth in her work, and not just in rehearsal. Watching her discover new things in performance is a joy, and I always come away feeling revitalized in my own creative process." 
- Mardie Millit, award winning artist, and one half of the power duo "Michael and Mardie"

" I thought the show was so so wonderful: entertaining, incredibly brave and personal but also something I think just about anyone can relate to." - Laurie Krauz, Multi-Award Winning Vocalist

Debut Album


Gretchen Reinhagen sets the bar high with her new CD, Take It with Me. In doing so, she proves what everybody already knows—what a powerhouse she can be. ” - John Hoglund

Cabaret Scenes

A performer widely known for her skill with comedy, Gretchen Reinhagen set the funny aside and put on her serious hat for her debut CD 'Take It With Me.' The versatile much more than a funny girl influenced by the comediennes who paved the way for a woman of her individuality and natural wit, as her maiden voyage into the recording studio proves. ...[Reinhagen's] technique as a singer and her inspiration as a storyteller afford her audience a sublimely artistic and surprisingly human journey, from start to finish.” - Stephen Mosher
