what the critics are saying

“Her singing is as detailed, nuanced, and cherishable as ever turned a performer into a legend.”
–New York

“Luker is as comfortable in this music as she is in Broadway material, displaying the same purity of tone, effortless phrasing and flawless intonation. Particularly fine here are 'Chelsea Morning' (Joni Mitchell); 'You're My Home' (Billy Joel); The Beatles' 'She's Leaving Home'; and Stephen Foster's 'Old Dog Tray.' Show fans will particularly enjoy the reunion between Luker and her Secret Garden co-star Alison Fraser, in 'Wick,' from that Marsha Norman–Lucy Simon score.”

“Rebecca Luker is the Gold Standard of Broadway singing and, in this wonderful selection of songs, she makes rainbows of sound out of virtually everything she performs.”
–Maury Yeston

“She sings with a focus that sends electrical currents through her shimmering soprano.”
–LA Times


Rebecca Luker
Leaving Home

Following her acclaimed performances as Maria in The Sound of Music, Marian in The Music Man, and Magnolia in Boat, Rebecca Luker returns to her roots with LEAVING HOME. Taking her cue from the songs and stylings of childhood idols like Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon – and pulling in a new generation of composers who share their gift for storytelling – she weaves a bewitching blend of folk, pop and theatre songs.
