DIVAS: Unsung will be a fun, relaxed evening of high quality cabaret.
Focusing on the best leading lady showstoppers that may have been forgotten by even the most die-hard fans, it should be a treat for lovers of Musical Theatre and novices alike!!
A lengthy rummage through the lesser known shows from London and Broadway history has turned up some real gems and we will be showcasing blockbuster numbers from all- but- forgotten shows. Featuring Music by Boy George, Charles Strouse, Dempsey and Rowe, Elton John and Bernie Taupin, Kander and Ebb, Lionel Bart, Marvin Hamlisch, Stiles and Drew, Tony Hatch & Jackie Trent and others…
Musical Director James Doughty will be weaving his magic with the score and our engaging and witty host will lead a stellar cast of West-End women.
Musicals may come and musicals may go, some are remembered forever, others forgotten overnight but they all need one thing…. a Diva!!
