Susan is always great! I've seen her solo show three or four times and seen her in other productions two times. I love the songs that she adds to her standard show. They add variety and are usually my favorites. This time, she added two of my favorites ("In His Eyes" from Jekyll and Hyde and "Heaven Help My Heart" from Chess). I also prefer her version of "I'll Show You the Ocean" to Faith Prince's. I'll keep going to see her and will keep hoping to hear her sing "The Stars and the Moon" again. I've purchased five versions of it, but still like hers best. Hopefully she will record it one day.

She did a wonderful show. I saw her a couple of years ago at the cabaret theater at Orange County Performing Arts Center, and loved her then, so I knew it would be a great show this time around as well.
Was seated in the back, but the venue...continued

In Love, Extreme Close Up, and Man of the Century (Audience Award, Slamdance), and The Third Wish.
In animation, Egan gave the sultry voice to Meg in Disney’s Hercules, sang the role of Angel in Lady and the Tramp II, and translated two Japanese blockbusters into English for famed animation director Hayao Miyazaki: Gina in Porco Rosso and Lin in Spirited Away, which won the 2003 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
On television, Egan spent two seasons on the WB’s Nikki, and has guest-starred on NUMB3RS, NYPD Blue, Arliss, Party of Five, Drew Carey, Almost Perfect, Partners, All My Children, Loving, and Great Performances: Rodgers and Hart, as well as movies of the week and specials for ABC, CBS, and the Disney Channel.
Egan has more than 40 recording credits to her name from Broadway cast albums to film soundtracks, including her three critically praised solo CDs: All That and More, So Far, and her latest, Coffee House, which won a Vocalist of the Year Award 2005 from TalkinBroadway.com.
