Get your tickets today, there is limited seating, and the event will surely sell out quickly! This wonderful show in two acts is a simple tribute to the romantic era of the early 20th century when, in smokey cabarets, songstresses would lament “carrying a torch” to keep aflame the light of a lost or unrequited love. In keeping with Valentine’s Day, we present a different side of love with an evening of music honoring tradition, but with a twist, featuring jazz pianist Joan Cifarelli and host Lou Esposito II. Sure to be an evening of enjoyment for those in love or those waiting for their future love. Purchase your tickets at Steeltown Coffee & Tea in Old Town Pittsburg, or online by clicking here.
