WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

With Alison Fraser and Allison Leyton Brown. Compiled and directed by David Kaplan. Broadway's Alison Fraser, twice nominated for the Tony Award (for The Secret Garden and Romance/Romance) sings a jewel box of pop songs from plays by Tennessee Williams. Among other pleasures: "It's Only a Paper Moon" (from A Streetcar Named Desire), "The Party's Over Now," "If I Didn't Care," and "St. Louis Blues." There's unexpected delights from country-western ballads, Mississippi blues, Latin love songs from Sweet Bird of Youth, and some rousing Gilbert & Sullivan from The Glass Menagerie. Songs are accompanied by piano powerhouse Allison Leyton Brown, a classically trained virtuoso acclaimed for driving the beat and rattling the rafters in a dazzling array of musical styles. The collection of songs was compiled by Tennessee Williams scholar and director David Kaplan, curator of the Tennessee Williams Festival in Provincetown.
