Here’s hoping the multifaceted redhead croons decade-old favorites “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia” and “Fancy” along with new radio hit “Going Out Like That.”

Lucky for Houstonians, lead actors Elizabeth Bunch, Jay Sullivan and John Feltch deliver an equally impressive performance at the Alley this month.
