The following is a transcript of a review by Eva Heinemann of the Manhattan Cable show, HI! DRAMA:

“On December 14th, I finally got the opportunity to hear Seth Bisen-Hersh’s songs at Broadway Can! for the Bowery Mission. Over a dozen of the best singers shared their favorite canned good stories, usually involving a memory of a loved one and then belted out such delightful tunes as “SO YOU WANNA BE A PERFORMER” sung by Elyse Beyer about the hardships of an actor’s life; Celina Carvajal had the power ballad “DREAMS” about being scared of mediocrity; Brooke Sunny Moriber sang a valentine to NY with “MY NY.” Kimberly Faye Greenberg and Brian Childers currently doing Danny and Sylvia sang songs about Thanksgiving and ending a bad relationship.
