Alliance Theatre Announces WE'RE STILL HERE: A VIRTUAL CABARET
The Alliance Theatre has announced a free variety show featuring Broadway stars Terry Burrell (Ethel) and Courtenay Collins (The Prom). Burrell and Collins will alternate as hostess as they entertain audiences from home with songs, stories, special cocktails, and maybe a surprise guest or two. We're Still Here: A Virtual Cabaret will be streamed live on the Alliance's Facebook page and YouTube channel each Thursday at 7:00 p.m., July 9 - August 13.
"We always jump at any opportunity to share the incredible talents of Terry Burrell and Courtenay Collins with our audiences," said Susan V. Booth, Jennings Hertz Artistic Director. "Time spent virtually in this company, with their joy, candor, and perspective, is good for the soul!"
