THIS – A theatrical cabaret with live pianist.

The latest collaboration between “Superbly gifted” actor and singer, Lucy Stevens & pianist Elizabeth Marcus. Directed by award winning cabaret artist Sarah-Louise Young.

Funny, revealing and bursting with songs from Variety to hits by Noel Coward and Kurt Weill.  The text is drawn from Gertrude Lawrence’s memoirs and tells of her childhood in Clapham:

“… following the organ-grinder down the street, dancing and holding out my skirts … a push from Mother, ‘Go on now Gertie, sing your song’ was all the urging I needed”

Gertie was soon performing in London’s nightclubs and revues, Noel Coward wrote Private Lives for her, she went on to become a leading lady in the West End and on Broadway. 

“I love the theatre life, but people talk about ‘settling down’ as though this were something every nice girl should wish to do. Well, perhaps I’m not a nice girl!”
