Happy New Year! As we enter a new decade I want to give thanks for some of the career highlights that were brought to me in 2019.
I started the year by playing "The Witch" in Theater 2020's Production of Into The Woods. It was a fantastic show and earned us a New York Theater Innovative Award Nomination.
The summer saw Guilty Pleasures Cabaret expand our show to venues in Atlantic City as well as the debut of our new show "Speakeasy Social" to rave reviews at 54Below.
This fall I continued my training at JWS and The Pit and added Musical Improv to my resume!
I ended the year feeling very festive with solo jazz engagements at ROBERT Restaurant and "Cocktails and Carols" with my GPC troupe at Club Bonafide.
I wish everyone a very happy and healthy New Year and look forward to 2020 being the best year yet!
January 2020- I started the New Year by traveling to Ohio where I had the chance to mentor and perform with students at Heidelberg University while working on "Embracing Eve." "Embracing Eve" explores how women’s roles have evolved throughout musical theater history. Featuring songs from hit shows of past and present like Gypsy, Guys and Dolls, A Chorus Line, Into the Woods, Once On This Island, Ragtime, Mean Girls, and many more. It was a joy onto itself to share the stage with twelve incredible women. But to have the chance to perform with amazing colleagues who I have admired for years and get to know younger performers who are getting ready to put their mark on the world was inspirational.
The concert was conceived by Director Stephen Svoboda and Music Director David Cotter. The concert featured Joan Anderson, Carol Dusdieker, Julia Goretsky, Caitlyn Oenbrink, and student performers Bella Ballard, Kaylea Bowers, Elizabeth Bowman, Riley Gibson, Lo Erin Jackson, Kamryn Mohney, Solana Petrone, Jasmine Ridler.

Of the four voices, each one strong and distinctive, Goretsky's stands out in range, power and nuance.- Neil Novelli, Syracuse.com (The Marvelous Wonderettes)
Goretsky plays singer/evangelist Reno Sweeney with hurricane force, belting out such tunes as “Blow Gabriel, Blow” and the title number with Mermanesque power and turning Porter’s “I Get a Kick Out of You” into a soft, sweet ballad. She’s also an accomplished comic, crossing romantic swords with a stuffy Englishman in one of the show’s funnier moments. -Tom Titus, Daily Pilot (Anything Goes)
Julia Goretsky is a marvelous Ursula, managing a complex tentacled costume that would distract a less focused performer. Her voice is full, resonant, and stretches from booming to gravelly in her big number, "Poor Unfortunate Souls.” -Linda Lowen, Syracuse.com (The Little Mermaid)
My personal favorite this season was Julia Goretsky as Lois/Bianca singing “Always True to You, Darling (In My Fashion)”. Goretsky also gave an outstanding performance as Sylvia in The Women. I’m sure we’ll see more of her as her career grows. She is a very gifted comedian. - Sonoma.net (Kiss Me Kate and The Women)
Julia Goretsky is galvanizing as firebrand socialist Emma Goldman.- Len Fonte Syracuse.com (Ragtime)
Julia Goretsky embuse her solos, from the title tune to Maybe This Time with stunning golden-throated intensity. Her duets…are howlingly funny.-David C. Nicholas, The Los Angeles Times (The World Goes Round)
