Recorded live, Milla Ilieva’s delightful show proves why she’s one of New York’s top cabaret acts. A wonderful evening filled with great songs and great patter; it’s love, it’s love, in all its guises. The show features well-known and lesser-known Broadway songs, and its constantly suprising – from a heartfelt rendition of A Cockeyed Optimist to Kander & Ebb’s gorgeous cut song from The Act, The Only Game In Town, to a glorious version of Taking A Chance On Love, Milla Ilieva weaves her southern charms around these songs as if she was born to sing them. She’s accompanied by Paul Trueblood.
