The 9:30 PM concert features songs by Dolly Parton, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Florence and the Machine, Ella Fitzgerald and a re-imagined holiday classic or two. The evening is created by Scott and her longtime collaborator, Playbill.com editor in chief Adam Hetrick.
Phantom of the Opera and Les Misérables associate director Seth Sklar-Heyn directs the show that has musical direction and arrangements by Jesse Kissel (The Scottsboro Boys, The Visit, Leap of Faith). Scott is backed by a three-piece band, which includes Kissel, Mat Fieldes (Matilda The Musical) on bass and Dan Weiner (Stomp, Holler if ya Hear Me) on drums.
Vodka Is the Reason for the Season promises "brassy songs, slurred autobiographical stories, and some lingering regret the next day. From 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 of what this time of year really means to her."
Scott has also appeared in the Ars Nova presentation of the new musical Taking Step Three13 and has also been a performer at Justin Sayre's The Meeting*. She is a graduate of the Boston Conservatory.
