June 17, 2022: On My Way To You… in October

So happy to bring my new cabaret show back one more time in October.

It explores the courage and daring of iconic performers from Al Jolson to Maria Callas to Barbara Cook and the deep impression they left on me.

With Tedd Firth as Music Director – and Mark Nadler as Director – the songs will be as unexpected as the stories of the people who sang them, from Tin Pan Alley to Pop and everything in between.
