Burnin’ Up: Tribute to the Jonas Brothers

The Duplex, NYC, April 14, 2019

Reviewed by Chris Struck for Cabaret Scenes

If you were a fan of the Jonas Brothers in the late 2000s, seeing a show devoted to them on a cabaret calendar would have likely felt like a breath of fresh air. Even more exciting is the fact that the brothers have regrouped this year and are set to serenade the world with more of their teenage romantic musings. In all likelihood, there will probably be a more grown-up version of what they put together in their younger years, but a few young women decided to also go back to their younger years by devoting a cabaret act to their favorite Jonas Brothers songs.

My favorite performances of the evening came from Kate Morrisey, who most successfully translated nostalgic spirit into convincing acting. In both “Please Be Mine” (Jonas Brothers) and “Fly with Me,” (Greg Garbowsky/Jonas Brothers) she showed off range and depth while making the songs believable from the first line: “They come and go but they don’t know that you are my beautiful.” Another group of performers—Eden Azar, Zoe Gillis, and Eva Nomikou (the EZE trio)—also took a solid turns on stage. Their performance of “Invisible” (Adam Anders/Nicholas Jonas/Zachary Poor) was strong and emotionally resonant. I could understand the teenage angst that must have been inspired by “I’m waiting for the moonlight, so I can find you in this perfect dream.” Also especially strong was Maya Avisar singing “When You Look Me in the Eyes” (Nick Jonas/Joe Jonas/Kevin Jonas/Kevin Jonas, Sr.

/PJ Bianco/Raymond Boyd). Her comedic turn of phrase when she had a change of heart in the song to become a fan showed off her sense of humor and strength of personality. In reality, who wouldn’t want their significant other to sing, “I can reach my tomorrow/I can hold my head high/and it’s all because you’re by my side.

Other performers on the evening, all of whom did a mostly good job were Carolyn Kang, Giuliana Bartucci, Genevieve McCarthy, and Brooke Bennish. Each held their own and gave a little comedic history about how their Jonas Brothers fandom had once made them do things they are embarrassed to admit today. While all harmless, their funny stories are theirs to tell.
