Here's to Your Illusions
Yip Harburg wrote the lyrics for hundreds of songs for Broadway shows, including Finian's Rainbow, movies, including The Wizard of Oz, and revues. He had a unique outlook, whimsical but questioning, which he put into his work more than perhaps any other songwriter. The evening's songs will follow Yip as he asks what we're to make of life and whether love is any help.

You'll hear some of his many songs that have become standards, and some buried treasures. There will be songs composed by Harold Arlen, Yip's most frequent collaborator, and by many other composers.

Dave Schweisguth is a singer who especially loves overlooked songs and interesting lyrics. His previous performance at Martuni's, in a "2+2 = Cabaret" showcase, explored the long dark night of his recent kitchen renovation.

Music director Russell Deason is a pianist and vocalist who performs, accompanies and produces (as Crushed Velvet Productions). He has been nominated for a 2020 Bestie award for Best Cabaret Performer.

Martuni's is one of San Francisco's best places to see up and coming cabaret and theater performers, as well as being SF's premier piano bar and the home of its most generous cocktails. At the corner of Valencia and Market streets, Martuni's is easily reached by BART or Muni.
