"Walt Spangler’s huge set, with what seems to be an impressive array of organ pipes takes center stage against the back wall. Tucked inside the Organ is Bonfire Madigan Shive, who plays the Cello and sings the most haunting music I’ve ever heard in a play. She also has Angel Wings. You can forget Phantom of the Opera – she outdoes Andrew Lloyd Webber." — BeyondChron.org by Lee Hartgrave

"The howls of a wounded cello and the voice of a tormented angel suffuse the blood-soaked tragedy on the American Conservatory Theater's stage. Above all - literally, seated high amid the massive organ pipes of Walt Spangler's industrial-baroque cathedral set - composer, cellist and vocalist Bonfire Madigan Shive is an electrifying one-woman heavenly choir." — San Francisco Chronicle

Bonfire Madigan San Diego, California

Bonfire Madigan, AKA Madigan Shive, is one of my favorite musicians of all time. She clutches her cello like a life-raft, singing in gorgeous yelps and hums. It doesn’t really matter if you like the kind of music Bonfire Madigan sings, because she does it so soulfully and gracefully, you can’t help but stand there open mouthed, gawking at her vocals and cello.— JS The Mercury Pdx, OR ... more
