Allyson Briggs: BACHARACH AT BIRDLAND at Birdland

Tickets available here.

What: A night celebrating Burt Bacharach’s tuneful music, with surprising new arrangements

This CD release concert celebrates music written by the one and only Burt Bacharach. Allyson Briggs of Fleur Seulere returns after a sold-out Birdland debut to explore the vast career of one of America's most beloved composers. Between Burt and his writing partner, Hal David, they created the soundtrack of American life in the 1960s. From "I Say a Little Prayer," "What the World Needs Now," and "Arthur's Theme," to the hauntingly beautiful "Alfie" and "Close to You," Allyson reinvigorates these hits recorded by a wide array of talented women. Allyson will be joined by musical director Andy Warren on trumpet, Jason Yeager on piano, Michael O’Brienon bass, and Peter Traunmueller on drums.

(Read an interview with Briggs about this show.)

Price: This concert is currently sold out, but livestream tickets are available for $20.

What: A funny, interactive, heartwarming, and thought-provoking cabaret show about dating

In this interactive cabaret show, which features snippets of familiar 80’s and 90’s tunes as well as choreography, projections and monologues, Dr. Kara goes back to her past and reflects on what went wrong (or maybe right) that caused her to still be loveless. She shares her insights on dating, relationships, and love, and she offers her advice on how to find the one.

Tickets available here.

For: Fans of candid one-woman shows and learning about history through personal stories

MENTION MY BEAUTY is a one-woman performance piece of Leslie Ayvazian reading from her memoirs.  She speaks candidly about navigating the anti-war movement, the women’s movement, and the sexual revolution. There’s also the heartbreak of the expectations of Armenian parents still reeling from the Genocide of 1915.  Leslie tells decidedly unsentimental, often hilarious stories of her life as a young woman surviving the cultural revolution without a plan.

Price: Tickets online are $20. Tickets at the door, if available, are $25 (Cash Only). There is a $20 minimum per person (food or beverage).

Thurs. July 11th @ 9:30 pm


Tickets available here.

What: An evening celebrating songs of girl power

“The Bechdel Test” is a way of evaluating whether or not a work of fiction is sexist and gender stereotypes women.  To pass the Bechdel Test, according to acclaimed American cartoonist Alison Bechdel, a work must feature at least two women, these women must talk to each other, and their conversation must concern something other than a man. And in this show we plan to ACE this test!!! This show will be filled with songs sung by women for women about anything but men! Come out for a night of girl power as we empower, touch hearts, make you laugh, and look good while doing it all.

Price: Tickets start at $29 (including fees) for side view seating. There is a $25 Food & Beverage Minimum.

Sat. July 13th @ 7 pm
