Katia Malarsky and Joshua J. Bennett “All You Have To Do Is Be,” is an original show created by the talented duo. Written, directed and arranged by Mr. Bennett, with musical direction by the incomparable Yasuhiko Fukuoka, made this show is a must see.

The evening opened with a beautiful medley, which included “I’m Gonna Fly” by Amy Grant, “I Believe I Can Fly” by R. Kelly, and “Fly” by Nicki Minaj. Malarsky and Bennett shared the stage with grace. They had the  understanding of two friends, who share a deep respect and admiration for one another. From the get-go the audience is invited to join these two friends as they celebrate life and the pursuit of dreams. What we learn is that everything is a bit more manageable with a little help from a friend.

Malarsky and Bennett share pieces of themselves making them relatable. They truly demonstrate that the more personal you are, the more universal you become. The duo are born story tellers and their voices soar throughout. These two cabaret veterans can sing any style from pop, to rock, to musical theater. Their rendition of “Song That Goes Like This” from Spamalot left the audience wanting more.

This carefully crafted show, told primarily through music, speaks volumes about love, acceptance, and finding your voice in a sea of uncertainty. Each song is meant to tell another piece of the story, as effective cabaret often does. Bennett and Malarsky have the keen ability to take known standards and pop staples and make them completely their own. From “Lucky” by Britany Spears to “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen, we feel as if these songs have never been heard before now.
