Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION

Actor-singer Bremner Duthie, who lives between Toronto and Paris, has done tributes to Frank Sinatra and Kurt Weill at past fringes.
This time the subject of his one-man cabaret — the search for happiness — is self-indulgent in the extreme.
Though he sings in a rich baritone and can hold a stage with a few simple props, there is something immature and whiny in a 40-something male who hasn’t figured out that life satisfaction is a byproduct of work and relationships.
The hour’s best bits occur when he accompanies himself by laying down various vocal tracks with a digital recording device. He could take that trick to Euro Disney.

From Weill to Nirvana to Britney to Brel to Tom Waits. From a howl to a lullaby.
