Soundtracking one’s love life may not be the easiest task in the world, but Pinkins and Simmons makes it look fun and necessary exercise. Their stories are comical, hopeful and heartbreaking allowing audience members to connect and participate in the show. Pinkins described “Bring On The Men” as a “party” and there definitely is no better way to define it. It is a party celebrating life, music, personal growth and the power of love.

by Valerie Jean-Charles BROADWAY BLACK

 

It takes a star as bright as Tonya Pinkins to out shine the beauty of the recently refurbished Joe’s Pub. On Monday evening, shine Tonya did in her show Bring On the Men, her command of the stage, sex appeal and acting ability kept all eyes on her while she was singing. Tonya’s voice is a wonderful instrument that can be loud and boisterous but also beautifully sweet as it was when she performed My Funny Valentine. Brad Simmons, the co-star of the show, marvelous work on keyboards and  singing worked beautifully with Tonya Pinkins vocals.

Time Out NY says

Her searing, monumental performance as the titular maid in the people's opera Caroline, or Change earned Tonya Pinkins a place in musical-theater history, but it was no one-off, as those who saw her in Jelly's Last Jam, Play On! or The Wild Party can attest. When she's onstage, attention must be paid.

 

Tonya is delighted to be singing again. It has been eight years since she has done a broadway musical. Tonya’s love of singing is itching to express and cabaret is the perfect venue for her unique gifts
