Tori Scott, “the Bette Midler of the new millennium” (Provincetown Magazine), returns to Joe’s Pub with her 3rd annual holiday show Tori Scott – Vodka is the Reason for the Season – an evening of lingering regret, slurred autobiographical stories, and songs written by other people.
Don't miss this "soul-baring singer and sharp comedian" (Huffington Post) as she explores her early childhood fascination with “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” to her time spent as a singing elf for an old folks home. Tori will take you on a shameless journey to celebrate what is truly special about this time of year (Spoiler: It's blackouts). Vodka is the Reason for the Season includes songs by Dolly Parton, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Florence and the Machine, Ella Fitzgerald and more.
Co-written by Scott and her longtime collaborator Adam Hetrick (Playbill.com), Directed by Sklar-Heyn (Broadway: Executive Producer, Miss Saigon; Production Supervisor, The Phantom of the Opera), and Musical Directed by Jesse Kissel (Broadway: The Visit, Leap of Faith)
"It's the sound of someone who's not afraid to show you just how human she is, while her super-human pipes blow you away." -- Broadway World
