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.
