Tell her (Athena) she can use my image whenever and however she wants.
The world’s top Lady Gaga Impersonator
With the look and the performing chops already there, Ms. Reich set about becoming one of the first, and most professional, Lady Gaga impersonators.
Athena Reich’s impressive impersonation of the pop star...Reich is a showboat with a great set of pipes that bear an uncanny resemblance to Gaga’s own, and she’s got more than a few aces up her sleeve. Her version of The Edge of Glory - rechristened here as The Edge of Labour - has her climbing over every inch of an upright piano while playing it (frequently upside-down). It’s hilarious, impressive and savvy... (Reich has) the promise of (a) star.
To witness the grace and electricity of an Athena Reich show is an experience.. In her shows, Athena expertly intertwines stand up comedy and storytelling into her energetic performances. In one show, you’ll laugh and cry and, at the end of the night, wish you could take her home with you. Her energy and comedic talent is infectious...
..great vocals...and an overall stage presence that makes you feel as though she’s reached out and hugged you with her smile, her soul and her wonderful voice.
One of NYC’s best kept secrets
Guinuine stage presence
Ooz(ing) with feisty energy, backed by (her) fierce musical dexterity
The Lady Gaga show was astounding. Their interaction with the audience was amazing. Athena and her dancers were so easy to work with that I would recommend them to perform at any venue.
