The Working Girls of Soho – Saucy Tales of Notorious Women
The Working Girls of Soho premiered this summer at Edinburgh Festival to sell out shows. Josephine Pembroke, ex-Sohoite, veteran night club performer (Heaven, Cafe de Paris, The Hacienda) and star of the 90s Bond girl act Pussies Galore, is back on The Phoenix Arts Club stage. Joined by incredible dancers, Lisa Mulidore and Sue Gyngell (ex Benny Hill’s Angels, Second Generation and The Two Ronnies) get ready for this highly entertaining show that oozes glamour. Audiences adore the live songs, dance and comedy in this hilarious, camp and illuminating show that tells the stories of the women who really ruled the old Soho, when it was still sleazy.
Expect spectacular show tunes, comedy, dance and wicked story telling!
