My cabaret takes its influence from theater, classical music, vaudeville, rock, jazz, blues and tango.
“Cabaret Nouveau” blends dark cabaret, sassy lyrics, hot piano stylings, great grooves and crafty songwriting. Echoes of Nina Simone, George Gershwin, Kurt Weill, and Elton John are heard in the music and lyrics, as well as a connection to members of the “Dark Cabaret” movement such as The Dresden Dolls, Jill Tracy, Antony and the Johnsons and The Tiger Lilies. She was winner of the “Best Modern Cabaret Artist” Competition in 2010.
“The Seven Deadly Pleasures”, a cabaret-rock musical, is a collaboration between Allison Lovejoy, Geoff Ball and unseen forces. It focuses on the universal conflict between good and evil and the “new sins” of modern times. It was presented to sold-out audiences in 2014 at the A.C.T. Costume Shop in residency with Goat Hall Productions, and was featured on the opening weekend of the SF International Arts Festival in 2015 at Fort Mason.
Miss Lovejoy is also collaborating on a musical about wild women in San Francisco history entitled “The Best Bad Things” with Candace Forest and members of the Wild Women Creative Coalition! Soon to be finished, songs from this show have been performed throughout San Francisco with enthusiastic reviews!!
