Gertrude Lawrence: A Lovely Way To Spend An Evening - Relaxed Performance
Phoenix Community Centre
Newton Dee Village
The 1930s star of musical comedy Gertrude Lawrence tells her story for the first time from her perspective, in her own words. A feisty, strong woman from Clapham, Gertie transcended the class ceiling, forging her stage and screen career into her 50s. The show celebrates her brilliance, on and off stage, with pacy dialogue, which is funny and revealing. Bursting with over 20 songs from London variety and revue to hits by Noel Coward and Kurt Weill. A theatrical cabaret performed by Lucy Stevens with 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 auto-biography and letters to tell her story from her own point of view. With songs and storytelling, Lucy’s performance embodies the spirit of Gertie, transporting the audience from her childhood in Clapham to London’s swanky nightclubs and the bright lights of Broadway.
