Kathryn Allyn has been called "a vocally lustrous earful” by the Philadelphia Inquirer, "elaborately ornamental" and "a martini dry wit" by CafeteriaRusticana.com, "note perfect" and "a charismatic presence" by the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, "musically superb" by BistroAwards.com and, in a personal favorite, "grandly libidinous" by Opera News.
Kaye has appeared at NYC's Café Noctambulo, The Cutting Room, The Underground, The West End Lounge, TomiJazz, Somethin' Jazz and Stage72. In her former life as a classical singer, she was seen in leading roles at New York City Opera, Carnegie Hall, Tokyo Symphony, Florida Grand, Palm Beach Opera, Opera Orchestra New York and others; Kaye's roles ran the gamut from Carmen (Carmen), Madama Butterfly (Suzuki) and Mahler’s Symphony Nr. 2 (Alto Soloist), to Oklahoma! (Ado Annie), Noel Coward's Bitter Sweet (Manon) and Gilbert & Sullivan's Utopia, Limited (that gal who's name I forget who was funny and had a nice duet).
Kaye is a political junkie, an avocational writer, a smart aleck and a cautionary tale. She's a native of the once-great state of Kansas, and makes her home on The Island of Misfit Toys with tenor Sam Kinsey and very naughty cat, Beatrix Cattenborough.
