Levis returns to roots for 'Innkeeper's Daughter Cabaret'

MANCHESTER — According to Melissa Levis, a divorced, musical Carrie Bradshaw exists.

Levis' limited run of "The Innkeeper's Daughter Cabaret" will take place this Saturday, and again on Saturday, July 21 and Saturday, July 28., at 8 p.m. at the Wilburton Inn.

Levis wrote a collection of songs that reflect her dating life following her divorce. "This cabaret is a celebration of the new green leaves on the tree after divorce I'm so happy I've had this midlife Renaissance. I can rethink my career, where I live and what I value in life. New York City isn't the end-all be-all," she said.

She refers to her personal stories about dating as "Naughty songs of love in the age of Tinder." Times have changed since she was a young Brown graduate, traveling throughout Europe with her guitar and falling in love along the way.

Now everyone's on dating apps like Tinder and Bumble, Levis added. "I love being able to express my journey of dating with music as my co-pilot."

Levis had an impressive songwriting career in New York, writing for several Off-Broadway productions. However, she couldn't stay away from the Green Mountains and her family's beloved inn forever.

"After living in New York for over two decades, I realized how much I love Manchester. [Now] I can combine my songwriting career in New York with my love for Manchester and being an innkeeper."

Levis promises a fun-filled, interactive evening for a mature audience. She hopes people will have a good time, whether it's a girls night, a first date or a newly single occasion.

Cocktails will be available at 6 p.m. followed by the performance at 8 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 802-362-7500.
