Meghan McGeary: Press/Reviews

"A sexy good time"
ELECTRIC EURIPEDES

"Ingenious, energetic..."
SOUNDS OF THE SUBWAY

"Summer subway stations can be hot and sticky but underground performers do their best to keep your commute cool. Keep your ears tuned for the dynamic duo Dagmar, with a female vocalist whose soaring vocals match her signature winged appearance."
Cool in Your Code, CiNYC - Metro (Aug 28, 2007)
"UNDERGROUND" MUSIC

"I'm the insect god dess that's come to lift everybody out of their boring day!" announced Meghan McGeary, who kicked off the 20th year of the program by singing and playing drums in the rock-opera duo Dagmar 2.
Wearing a gold bustier and matching high heeled boots, an aviator cap with goggles and a gold- trimmed set of green mesh wings, McGeary sang a quirky song about a guy who can't get out of bed in the morning - and the "insect goddess who plunges from the ether to rescue him."

NOT JUST RATTLING THEIR CHAINS: A MUSICAL "CHRISTMAS CAROL"

"This Christmas Carol adds up to spirited entertainment"

"Best of all is the cast"

"Admirably played by versatile performers"
A "beguiling musical"

"Delightful score, outfitted with smart lyrics"

Meghan McGeary is "elegant" as the Ghost of Christmas Past
“The presentation is certainly theatrical, including a set of glimmering wings that McGeary dons at one point, but what anchors the band is the singers’ voices: his is weary and experienced, hers is hauntingly beautiful, and they play back and forth over a soundtrack that is equal parts rock fury and jazzy resignation. Their energy, even as they sing about wanting to stay in bed all day, is contagious."
Review of DAGMAR, Sept 30th performance at Galapagos Art Space - Brian Richichi Reviews (Oct 1, 2005)
"Meghan McGeary’s interpretation of Hannah is skilled and forthright. Her “dada performances” are so convincing that for the first time in my life, I could imagine the punk-rock electricity of Tristan Tzara’s Cabaret Voltaire. Moving across the stage her physicality is angular and captivating, and her devotion for Max tragic. "
"The cast actually worked better as an ensemble than the cast of the original production at the Public Theatre... (Meghan) McGeary was a volatile swirl of conflicted emotions and impulses, making each one wholly believable."
But above all was the wonderful, wide-eyed simplicity of (Meghan) McGeary as Shen Te...
She...made Shen Te's destiny far more important than the fate of mankind.”
“McGeary is extra-impressive because she is a genuine beauty who, even though her looks are partly what the play is about, never uses them as an acting prop. We have to believe that Peter loves her despite her loveliness, and McGeary’s many-sided performance pulls it off.”
