Allison, writes songs of love, lust and longing, making you laugh and weep at the same time. From tales of San Francisco to tangos about seduction, she takes you through a musical journey that revisits Kurt Weill, Cole Porter, Ben Folds, and Nina Simone, while spinning out piano stylings of Liszt, Fats Waller, Bartok and Elton John.
This concert will feature Bay area female vocalists interpreting her songs and stories, accompanied by Allison on the piano... it's Cabaret Nouveau!!
