Catherine Thomson is "...a cabaret artist to watch. Not only does she sing like a canary and move like a cat, she gets the art of cabaret and thus is, above all, a wonderful story teller."
– Cabaret Scenes magazine

“Thomson brings much to the cabaret table… She landed the humor beautifully.” – Cabaret Scenes magazine

“The standout on this menu was 'Dog in Taiwan,'…a big-time funny list song … Thomson built it well, spinning puppy.” Cabaret Scenes magazine

About Herstory: The 19th Amendment Turns 100!:

"A wonderful performance by smart, strong women with beautiful voices, music, humor and a fantastic historical journey shared. Thank you!"

"This show is touching and important. Thoroughly enjoyable and thought provoking. It reminds me of how much I’ve taken women’s rights and liberty for granted. They were possible because of the long, painful fight by those who refused to give up their hopes and dreams."

"This was a wonderful show! Thoughtful, clever, funny, beautifully sung!"

"Beautiful arrangements, fabulous harmonies all beautifully interwoven with fascinating stories of the Women's Suffrage movement. An amazing journey told and sung by amazing women!"

"It showed creativity, really enjoyable productions, good singing, and wonderful content; it was funny and provocative."

CATHERINE Thomson was reviewed in Cabaret Scenes as “…a cabaret artist to watch. Not only does she sing like a canary and move like a cat, she gets the art of cabaret and thus is, above all, a wonderful story teller.” Catherine has created several successful solo cabaret shows, but also enjoys collaborating with fellow artists. Catherine and Anita Kallen have a long-running partnership beginning with their sold-out Davenport’s run of Dangerous Women in 2011 and continuing to this day with their HERstory series, which includes The 19th Amendment and the Power of the Vote!, which began in a sold-out live performance at Davenport’s in 2019 and later became a long-running virtual performance filmed at the Skokie Theatre in 2020 and broadcast nationwide throughout the pandemic, and Trailblazing Female Firsts which debuted to standing ovations at Davenport’s Cabaret in March 2022.  Other collaborations include the sold-out celebration concert Bernstein at 100: Songs of Love and Longing at the Skokie Theatre in 2018, featuring vocal quartet and piano. Catherine has performed in musicals and plays around Chicagoland, as well as in many Chicago Cabaret Professionals reviews and galas.
