Alicia Witt is the quintessential triple threat. As an actress with a mile-long resumé of film and television roles, including Cybil, Friday Night Lights, and The Mentalist, she has a witty, self-effacing, and warm personality atypical of most fetching Hollywood starlets. As a songwriter, her playfully poetic and romantically earnest lyrics have the ring and sting of Carole King, and her confidence at the keyboard suggests a jaunty Elton John or a lovable Billy Joel.

As a New Year’s Eve treat, Alicia returns to her hometown to delight revelers with original piano-driven tunes ranging from sunny pop to fiery rock, along with heartbreaking ballads that might inspire audience members to egg the houses of Witt’s exes. All audience members will receive a First Night Worchester button that grants discounts throughout the arts community.
