Lessons from the Highlands

Award Winning Performing & Recording Artist, Director, and Teacher

“...something happened, something miraculous that caused every molecule in the room changed. Starting with “Love Makes The World Go Round” (Bob Merrill), and continuing through “Lazy Afternoon” (John Latouche and Jerome Moross) The room fell silent, and one could hear a pin drop, as Reinhagen so completely inhabited both the spirit of the song and her homage to Ballard that it was hard to tell them apart. This is a kind of magic that does not happen often on any stage and it was breathtaking.“  - David Sabella, Cabaret Hotspot

Honoring Kaye Ballard at Lincoln Center

What they're saying...

"Lately it seems that singer Gretchen Reinhagen’s name pops up most often with the word “director” attached, but in her continuing residency at Pangea the words “host” and “star” are more to the point."


"In recalling Kaye Ballard as an important influence, the talented Gretchen Reinhagen shares not only her idol's vocal quality but adds a valuable slant on the mercurial quality of fate. In between signature songs, she recounts Ballard's hardly-chopped-liver career but includes a number of tough-luck stories that make the oft-overlooked point that natural gifts aren't everything. The gift of good luck is also required. "The Village Voice ("Voice Choice" Critic's pick)


"I don't use this word often or casually, but Gretchen Reinhagen's show about Kaye Ballard is a triumph." - Cabaret Scenes


"This uplifting show is masterfully directed by Gretchen Reinhagen, who seemingly knows the heart of this woman so well she has crafted the act to showcase [Donna] Hayes at her very best."

Raw Diamond Records 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
