Illusions - a French Cabaret

From Follie and Faux pas, denial and finally, redemption, we are transported to the vibrant Cabaret era of 1930's Paris. In this onewoman show, 'ILLUSIONS-a French Cabaret', written and performed by Chanteuse, Anne Millar with Vincent Cologiuri on piano, "Millar weaves the tale through superlative acting and her sublime mezzo soprano voice.. she knows how to inhabit a character so that you in the audience forget.. and are there with her" (Bruce Mutard - Fringe Feed)

Through the lost songs of original 20' and 30's Parisien Cabaret Divas; and icons Piaf, Dietrich and Eartha Kitt, we evoke the unique visual and musical intensity of the era., where with wicked, dark humour and raw, cruel anguish, she moves through the pain of self-delusion, out of the dark, into mastery of self, life and love.
