Time Out says

Every few years, the fascinating Tammy Faye Starlite sheds her skin. She has performed as a country singer and as glacial German chanteuse Nico; now, at East Village boîte Pangea, she channels the distressed glamour and heroin-pierced hauteur of English singer-survivor Marianne Faithfull. Cabaret Marianne summons a world of bygone rock decadence, with a keen edge of wit—“It’s less an impersonation than an interpretation,” Starlite notes—and respect for history: Her band includes guitarist Barry Reynolds, who cowrote Faithfull’s “Broken English.” The mix of brutal pathos and satirical wit makes for a bracing evening.
