About this event

From follies and faux pas into delusion and denial, follow a young woman’s desperate search for love.

It is through lost songs of authentic Parisian Cabaret divas, and iconic Piaf, Marlene Dietrich and Eartha Kitt, that we are transported to the vibrant Cabaret era of 1930’s Paris and evoke the unique intensity of the era. Experience both the dark and sublime within us all.

In this one-woman show, “ILLUSIONS - a French Cabaret’, written and performed by Chanteuse, Anne Millar, with Vincent Colagiuri on piano, she moves through the pain of self-delusion out of the dark and into mastery of self, life and love.

You'll discover the difference between a Peignoir and a Pinot Noir, learn new things to do with a Baguette, become tres, tres chic and yes, there’ll be lots and lots of French... words!
