“In his playfulness, Mr. Smith is a descendant of his fellow Australian, Peter Allen. He could be described as a younger generation’s “Boy From Oz.”"
"Completely stellar...slyly subversive."
Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal, New York City
There's no one else around these days offering the kind of cabaret that he does so compellingly. Well, maybe Ute Lemper, but that's it. Smith needs to be seen, and now.”
David Finkle, The Village Voice, New York City
"Smith is a visionary without borders who might just be the David Bowie of Cabaret."
John Hoglund, BroadwayWorld.Com
“Boyishly handsome, Smith’s got the perfect voice and androgynous vibe to make him a memorable Emcee. When he appears bare chested in a tuxedo jacket, his muscular legs protruding from shorts, Smith suggests a cross between Marlene Dietrich and David Bowie.”
“(Smith) embodies all that is unique about this art form -- it would be a challenge to look away from him. There isn’t an extraneous gesture, expression, word or note. He has chiseled away everything that is unimportant to get down to a precise core. This is cabaret at its best and most interesting!”
Arthur Frank, Cabaret Scenes Magazine, New York City
"Not to mince words, Kim David Smith is mesmerizing."
Barbara Leavy, Cabaret Scenes Magazine, New York City
