"Here's a performer to watch. With "I Can't Read Music" Tara Tag has a concept that she carries through with wit, humor and reverence for the women for whom she pays tribute. Her physical comedy was delicious and she had the singing chops to match."
Broadway Actress, Cabaret Award Winning Perfromer
"I expected to be entertained and enjoy every minute of Tara Tagliaferro's cabaret "I Can't Read Music", but somehow it EXCEEDED all of my expectations. It was a delightful, well-constructed and eclectic hour of songs, tied together with personal tidbits and Tara's own unique and charming sense of humor. Tara single-handedly made me laugh until my sides hurt; and just when I least expected, even conjured a tear or two.
I've since been recommending her show to everyone I know!"
"Tara Tagliaferro’s “I Can’t Read Music” is saturated with laughter and joy, two things we could use plenty more of in this crazy world. She moved seamlessly from personal life stories to song, and although she made sure to give credit to the iconic women who first gave these melodies life, it was as if each song were written specifically for her."
Screenwriter of Happy Yummy Chicken
"Full throttle cabaret...charming, witty, hilarious and touching....joyously entertaining..Dont miss the talented Tara Tag in her tour de force solo debut: "I Can't Read Music!"
The evening went by so quickly. Every song was a surprise...and so funny. I had a great time. Wow! This girl has great timing. She's got a fresh approach: a modern twist on old fashion musical comedy…
I don't know…I just love her face...I kinda want to take her home with me! She's delightful! So entertaining!"
"Tara Tag embodies the heart and soul of why musical theater will never go far from the stage or our hearts. She is a storyteller, plain and simple. You can't help but be caught up in the pictures she paints through her songs, anecdotes, jokes, and endearing antics, as well as drawn into the light she shares so brilliantly from
her own sweet soul."
"Tara Tag has the spirit of someone from another time. A time when Cole Porter was on the radio, Shirley Temple was on the movie screen, and it was perfectly normal to sing and dance your feelings out. Armed with an earnest, if not lanky delivery and some fierce comedic timing, Ms Tag is reminiscent of a young Carol Burnett. While unprepared to do so, I belly laughed for a solid 60 minutes!"
CITY OF DREAMS Web-series Composer
"I see theatre as a world class, magical passport that has granted me access to travel
through different cultures, history,
and deep inside of myself.
It fills me with purpose."
The journey of Tara Tag's one-woman vehicle I CAN’T READ MUSIC!, a cabaret love letter celebrating Tara's favorite musical comedy starlets whom all coincidently claimed they could not read a note, began in January 2012 as her first crack at creating her own work. Debuting at the Duplex in New York City, I CAN’T READ MUSIC! has since become a treasured fingerprint of Tara's performance identity, celebrating her vintage spirit and love of laughter and music. Through the stories and songs of Shirley Temple, Carol Burnett, Betty Hutton, Keely Smith, and Teresa Brewer, she weaves together chapters of her own life with each heroine spotlighting a specific stepping stone. I CAN'T READ MUSIC! has gone on since to be awarded a summer residency with the 1812 Productions Jilline Ringle Solo Performance Program and had its Philadelphia premiere with Mazeppa Productions Cabaret Series at the Christ Church Neighborhood House Theatre. Tara most recently reprised selections from I CAN'T READY MUSIC! in JillineFest 2016 in Philly.
