Rave Reviews from the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe:
British Theatre Guide
"*****A winning raconteur. Sam Shaber is a highly intelligent and compelling performer."
Janice Forsyth, BBC Scotland
“What a performer! Life, Death & Duran Duran was one of my highlights of the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe. This show is life-affirming and funny as well as poignant. A must-see.”
"Shaber displays her bright vocals on her own compositions, switching from electric to folk guitar, often neatly segueing into some of her idols' songs. Shaber's warmth and sincerity mean that the show, while emotionally raw, is never maudlin."
"The stories are heartfelt and her singing is stunning. She owns the stage when she sings."
"Sam weaves together her life's journeys into a coherent and satisfying whole. Life, Death & Duran Duran is solid storytelling: unapologetic about both its sentimentality and compassion."
Katy Koren, Gilded Balloon
“A beautifully performed and written monologue with incredibly catchy songs, Sam’s show was a joy to have as part of our programme in 2017. We’d love to have her back in the future!”
