Stew Review in the New York Times
Pop Review | Stew: A Troubadour Travels in Circles, With Lives Tangled in His Own: “Onstage Stew was as much an actor as a singer. His voice is genial and adequate, but he had the rubber-faced presence to make each song vivid. He set up songs with droll introductions and turned himself into a secular preacher, a befuddled tripping teenager and a frustrated gay Ken doll who would prefer G.I. Joe to Barbie. Without cynicism or naive optimism, he understands human weaknesses and all the fascinating trouble they can cause.
I miss Stew. He’s in New York now.
