Rechristened Peaches Christ Superstar, ARTFORUM stated in their review, “Not only did Peaches set it off, she managed to surprise us all by showing off an expansive vocal range, a musicians’ natural sensitivity to the dynamics of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s score, and an emotive prowess that is rarely if ever displayed in her own, less holy music.” The Boston Globe also stated, “Her vocal gifts, in particular, were a revelation as Peaches wailed, intoned, and even crooned as if Broadway beckoned.” Peaches also received rave reviews of her career-chronicling opera Peaches Does Herself that ran at Berlin’s prestigious Hebbel Theater. The autobiographical opera featured 23 original songs from her catalog and included a cast of over 40. The opera represented her work dealing with such themes as gender, beauty and age.
