With her sleek black gown, her subtle but theatrical jewelry, and her insolent humor, Stone seems to be a natural successor to Julie Wilson.
She torched the blues with such subtle power that one might expect the room to catch on fire from her icy underplaying.
Stone’s very surprising “The Ladies Who Lunch” overflowed with brilliant choices that took it far away from the Elaine Stritch/Patti LuPone mode..
A gentle and touching version of “Something Good.” The song’s title was, in effect, a major undervaluation of a show that was truly something wonderful.

Cabaret Scenes (June 2022)
Ms. Stone's new show HERE I AM! is a little slice of heaven dropped right in the laps of her listeners…
...she is a dichotomy, a contradiction, a multi-faceted, fascinating woman with life experience and many detours in the road that has led her to this time in her life; and her audience is the lucky beneficiary of the stories that go along with that journey.
HERE I AM! is a triumph, not just for Deborah Stone as a performer but for the people who listen to the story and who hear it.
….The only real disbelief, though, should come on the day that Deborah Stone plays to a room that is anything but full, such is the magnitude of her gifts as a nightclub performer...

Broadway World (Nov 2019)
More often than not, the "this is me" format of cabaret doesn't work. It does, however, work extremely well when the performer is actually someone who is interesting and engaging enough. Deborah Stone's Here I Am! was one of those moments when it all clicks!
She's charming and tells her sordid show business tale with insightful patter, or shall I say dialogue, while comfortably, with a dancers ease, navigates the stage. Vocally spot-on, "Life Upon the Wicked Stage," followed shortly thereafter by a "La Cage aux Folles" medley, made this night one of the best of the year.
There are real moments of vulnerability that make it universal and Deborah is someone you'll be glad to know and her show is one you'll want to see!

What does a triple threat do when her professional dancing days are over? In Deborah Stone’s case, she creates a love-letter of a show to the dancer that she was, highlighting her graceful acting skills and her resonant, clarinet-like mix.
I was breathlessly engaged, wondering what strategy the pair would employ next
