with music direction by JESSE KISSEL
July 3 & 29
Mark Cortale Presents TORI SCOTT with Jesse Kissel at the piano. The Bette Midler of the New Millennium (Provincetown Magazine) is back at the Art House and she still hasn’t learned from her mistakes! Known for her cabaret shows that take true stories from her life and turn them into musical celebrations, Tori Scott returns to PTown with her new show Tori Scott is Pickled!, a shameless musical journey with blackouts and belting. As she crawls deeper into her thirties, Tori has decided to examine her life, one martini at a time. Tori Scott is Pickled! will take you on a slurred autobiographical adventure of her biggest regrets, her most recent shame spirals, and her life surrounded by too many gay men. Pickled includes music from Lady Gaga, Madonna, Dolly Parton, and more!

“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
