"Chansons" was nominated for “Producer of the Year 2021” by "The TheaterMakers Studio" from the Tony Award winner Ken Davenport.
The show stands for 'touching' stories about life and passionate songs from 'Ne me quitte pas' (Brel) to 'Milord' (Piaf). Sung and performed in the form of 'brilliant show interludes' by Stefanie Rummel (singing/acting) and accompanied by her pianists.
"And when the musical chameleon first breathes Brel's ballad "Ne me quitte pas" into the microphone for the finale of her one-woman show and then encourages the audience to sing along without restraint with her gospel show-down, these are just two of the many highlights of an intimate evening of cabaret put together with much love." Offenbacher Post
"Evergreens like "Amsterdam", "L'accordéoniste" and - at the end - "Milord" made the hearts beat faster, as the stormy applause showed. Without encore the duo was not dismissed and gave the audience still "La vie en rose." Rheingauer Echo
The song Art "...is about the effect of art on us," Rummel explains. Art, she says, is a source of inspiration, of meditation, of feeling, of reflection, of creating strength. "This is more important than ever." Frankfurter Neue Presse
“Developing stories that touch people with singing and your own music, and thus winning prizes, is a wonderful gift,”

CHANSONS - Eine interkulturelle Brücke zwischen Menschlichkeit, Kunst, Kultur erzählt durch Lieder und Geschichten
Stefanie Rummels neues Programm ist mehr als eine interkulturelle Show, ein Cabaret, mit französischen Songs und Stories. Mit „Chansons“ verbindet die Künstlerin Menschlichkeit, Kunst, Kultur und Geschichten. Sie baut eine Brücke. Und vor allem regt sie ihr Publikum zur Selbstreflexion an. „Chansons“ ist ein Showprogramm, das nicht ohne Grund nach seiner Premiere in 2019 bereits mehrfach nominiert und ausgezeichnet wurde. Und das kommt auch beim Publikum an: „Qualitativ hochwertig, legendäre Lieder mit den dazugehörigen tiefen Bedeutungen sind ein echtes Geschenk.“ – Dall Wilson

"As a chanteuse as multifaceted as love. The role of femme fatale suits Stefanie Rummel well. Whether as a spoiled luxury woman, lascivious vamp or undercooled beauty.... The German version of “Big Spender” is just as professional and filling the hall as “Money Makes The World Go Round”, and Rummel's interpretation of the classic “Fever” is in no way inferior to the original in terms of crackling eroticism." Offenbacher Post
