"Performed with the utmost physical and vocal grace,
On Becoming is an elegantly graceful telling of an artist’s life".
"(Catherine) bravely fashioned a perfect gem of a show … honed to a burnished finish, with humor, feeling and a physicality that rivals a great mime’s. Here is an autobiography in song that is honest,
funny and poignant."

In On Becoming, Catherine’s one woman show, she recalls through songs and stories her emergence as an actress while growing up surrounded by the famous and talented classical music members in her family and beyond. One sees Catherine transform herself into every personality in her story; Grandmother, Lea Luboshutz, the violinist, who concertized for the Court of the Romanoff’s and all over Europe and was brought to America by the impresario Sol Hurok; Grand Uncle and Aunt, Pierre Luboshutz and Genia Nemenoff, world famous Duo Pianists; and Boris Goldovsky, opera director and musicologist, who for thirty years was heard on the radio during the intermissions of the Metropolitan Opera Broadcasts. Catherine shares the experience of working with Harold Pinter on Broadway and recounts how she used her colorful family to enhance her performance as Jennifer Connelly’s mother in the film Little Children. In a review from November 30, 2012 Joel Benjamin writes; “(Catherine) bravely fashioned a perfect gem of a show…honed to a burnished finish, with humor, feeling, and a physicality that rivals a great mime’s.
