A Tennessee Williams Songbook

Songs chosen by Tennessee WIlliams to be sung in his plays as counterpoint to his dialog.

Performed by Alison Fraser. Orchestrations by Alison Leyton-Brown. Photos by Ride Hamilton.

In a play written by Tennessee William,  music is the sound of paradise drifting in from around the corner, across the alley, from the room next door, the promise of love and happiness just out of reach, leading us on to believe in the possibility of love and harmony somewhere, if not where we are, listening in circumstances far removed from love or happiness.
