Allison Blackwell is an award winning Philadelphia native who has distinguished herself as a force of nature in the theatre and concert world. Her versatile voice and outgoing personality on stage make her a highly sought after performer.
Allison Blackwell made her Broadway debut in The Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess alongside six-time Tony Award Winner Audra McDonald and Tony Nominees Norm Lewis and David Alan Grier. This life changing experience allowed Ms. Blackwell to record her first original cast album and perform at the 2012 Tony Awards (Winner Best Revival). In 2013, Allison played one of her musical “idols” Aretha Franklin, in A Night With Janis Joplin. USA Today noted, “Allison Blackwell, veers from a stunning operatic rendering of Summertime to a shivery, booming impersonation of Aretha Franklin.”
Her concert titles “First you Dream” is a wonderful compilation of Broadway, American Songbook and Opera.
