Gertrude Lawrence – A lovely way to spend an evening
Gertrude Lawrence, the 1930’s star of musical comedy tells her story.
“A wonderful show, utterly brilliant. Fabulous singing – ‘lovely’ is actually a massive understatement.” Nigel Foster, Director London Song Festival
Funny, revealing and bursting with songs from Variety & Revue’s to hits by Noel Coward to Kurt Weill. Performed with a live pianist. The latest collaboration between ‘Superbly gifted’ actor and singer, Lucy Stevens and pianist Elizabeth Marcus. Directed by award winning cabaret artist Sarah-Louise Young.
Lucy Stevens has cleverly crafted a new vibrant script using Gertrude Lawrence’s own words taken from her memoirs. With songs and storytelling, Lucy embodies the spirit of Gertie, leading the audience from her childhood in Clapham, to London’s swanky night clubs and the bright lights of Broadway.
“We were mesmerised by Gertie and her story, her music and her wit – and the use of the stole! Blooming marvellous!”
Doors 6.30pm. Show 7pm.
