February 2024 - A Special Shoutout ! - "Décidemment, Nora Louise Syran est, par les temps qui courent, la meilleure ambassadrice des chansons du Tonton Marcel. La poétesse et dramaturge américaine continue, à travers sa performance « Impressions of Paris », à promouvoir, pour un public anglophone, les chansons de Marcel Legay. Sa pièce, sous-titrée « A Play with the Music of Montmartre », met en scène plusieurs artistes de la Belle Epoque (Suzanne Valadon, Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, Aristide Bruant, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Gustave Caillebotte, Edouard Manet, Pierre Puvis de Chavannes , Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Toulouse Lautrec… ) et comporte treize chansons (dont sept de Marcel Legay) qui pour la plupart ont été chantées dans les cabarets artistiques de la Belle Epoque"

Spring 2024 - Shoutouts ! - I am the Center of My Universe “ Leave it to Nora Louise Syran to find (literally) universal joy in the discovery of one's own solipsism. As someone who contemplates the beauty of celestial objects and the inconstancy of one's location on an ever-moving planet hurtling through space so that from moment to moment we are never where we were and will never be there again, this monologue was a warm arrow to my heart, a sparkler in my brain, and a salve for my weary soul. [Miranda Jonte's Back Porch Theatre recitation captures all this magic.] And talk about great last lines... Bravo! ”
