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.
