The Gretna Theatre, in Mount Gretna, Pennsylvania kicked off their 86th Season with Faith Prince in concert. This concert titled, “Have a Little Faith,” is full of laughter and emotion, and a reminder to the audience of the talents of Ms. Prince. Her voice is show stopping, and the songs she chooses for her concert are impassioned. There was not a false note, in her singing or in her emotion, throughout the entire evening.

I have always loved to watch Faith Prince, she brings such passion to her roles, and her concerts are no exception. For those of you who have seen Ms. Prince on stage, you will not be disappointed with her concert. I have seen her in concert a number of times, and every time I see her, she sings a variety of songs that each tell a different story. All her performances are full of pizazz and charm, and she is astounding to watch on stage.

The “Have a Little Faith” Concert includes well known songs such as “Adelaide’s Lament,” “Somewhere That’s Green,” and “The World Goes Round.” Her voice is strong in all these songs, and watching her take on the persona of Adelaide from Guys and Dolls, or Audrey from Little Shop of Horrors is amazing. Her selection of songs show off Ms. Prince’s voice, and her passion comes through in all her songs. One of my favorite songs from the evening was the song “Crossword Puzzle” from Starting Here, Starting Now. The song tells a story, and Ms. Prince enhances this song with her wonderful voice and strong emotion. I have heard this song done before, but Faith Prince’s version was brilliant. Another song that was beautiful and full of sentiment was “Bless Your Heart.” This song is an original song written by Ms. Prince’s pianist and musical director, Alex Rybeck. I really adored this song, and was glad she performed it that evening.

“Have a Little Faith” was a night full of laughter and emotion, and Faith Prince tells a story about her life and her life as a performer. If you get a chance to see Ms. Prince in concert, go do so. You will not be disappointed. Faith Prince will be at 54 Below in New York City until June 8th.

Final Thought: Faith Prince is delightful and entertaining, and her concert is exceedingly enjoyable.
