I apologize for being so long away everyone. Since we’ve talked I’ve finished Over the Rainbow,
done my concert at MCC, BROADWAY, MY WAY
and my cabaret, SHUT UP, IT’S CHRISTMAS! For the first act of which, I was me. These two shows are from act two where I play Mrs. Claus – old and young.
Now, we come to the next exciting project. I’m coming/going home to Winnipeg to do a concert.
ME AND MY TOWN: THOM ALLISON IN CONCERT
From Winnipeg to Broadway and Back
It’s part of the Sondheimfest that the city is participating. So all of the songs in my hour and a half concert are from the repertoire of the great theatre composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim. Always a joy, honour and a gift to perform his music. My pianist is a gifted young musician, musical director named Scott Christian. Remember that name. You’ll be hearing it a lot. I’m so excited.

Oh my children, it has been way too long. I can’t really say nothing is happening but I can’t say something is happening either. I can give you a couple of things that are pretty much confirmed for now.
1. I am doing a solo concert on FRIDAY, NOV. 30. Mark it in your calendars. It will be at Metropolitan Community Church, 115 Simpson Ave., Toronto. I’m just working out what it will consist of now. I’m very excited. It will be my first big solo gig since being back from Broadway.
2. I am doing a solo Christmas cabaret on SUNDAY, DEC. 16 at Tallulah’s Cabaret at Buddies In Bad Times. I LOOOVE CHRISTMAS!! It’s been years since I’ve done a Christmas show. There will be some familiar songs done in unfamiliar ways. A special visitor or two. Some cheer, some camp, some laughs, some surprises. Come on, IT’S CHRISTMAS!!!!!
I hope everyone can come. I will give more details of where and when as everything gets ironed out. And if you’re wondering if it’s a lot of the same material in both . . . please, would I do that to you my children? There may be a couple of tunes in common, but for the most part, they will be two very VERY different evenings.… [Continue reading]
