“Everything she does in her show is wonderful!” – Lynda Sturner, Cabaret Scenes

“Marta Sanders is a good-time girl: Whenever she performs, the audience has a good time. Bold and brassy, she poached the crowd with her very first numbers, a combination of tunes from Gypsy. Then she scrambled their expectations with her comic patter, before frying them with her ability to make them laugh themselves silly with a number like ‘Gristedes’ and then move them to tears with a poignant ‘Wonderful World’.” -Theatermania.com
