Emily Goglia’s show entitled “Girl Meets Guy, Guy Meets Guy, Girl Meets Drink,” takes the audience on a wild ride of the heart. Emily reveals, both through her witty and gutsy banter and her powerhouse vocals, how she was left by her best friend. The man she thought she would spend the rest of her life with. The man who couldn’t give her everything he’d promised her because he was gay.

I was hooked from the start, but the moment Emily sang “Case of You,” I knew this show would be nothing short of outstanding. Goglia has a way of making each and every person in the audience feel at home. Though she is playing to a crowd, she speaks to each and every one of us individually.

Her voice is phenomenal. One of the most versatile and incredible voices  I’ve heard live. But beyond her sensational vocal capability is Goglia’s ability to interpret a song with depth and humanity, making each lyric her own.

She chooses repertoire from across the board.  From legit musical theater to pop, she can sing it all.  I very much enjoyed her closing medley, which featured “Beautiful,” by Carole King, “Beautiful,” by Christina Aguilera, and “One Hand In My Pocket,” by Alanis Morissette.

Brilliantly musically directed and accompanied by Brandon Sturiale, Emily’s incredible band also features Steven Walker (guitar), Allison Kelly (bass), and Alex Simpson (drums).

This show is both touching and hilarious. Goglia has a great sense of humor and flawless comedic timing. She has us hysterical with her rendition of “The Wizard and I” (aka “He Slept With a Guy) and enthralled with  “(All About) Sara Lee.”  Then she rocks the house with “You Oughta Know.”     

Emily Goglia is revelatory in her one woman show, which debuted at Feinstein’s 54 Below in May and most recently played at the Metropolitan Room on December 8th.  

Goglia is captivating. A bright star not to be missed!
