Swing It on Broadway

Saturday 27th October 2007 at 7.30pm in The Main House

Sophisticated theatrical cabaret at its best!

Who can resist a showtune? Who can stop their foot tapping to those swinging Rat Pack beats? Join our top West End artistes as they celebrate both of these fabulous genres of music in one show.'Swing it on Broadway' takes you back to a time before satellite television. Entertainment had style and performers had staying power. Barbra Streisand was taking Broadway by storm in the hit musical "Funny Girl".

However; the curtain call was not the end of the evening - it was time to cut across town to croon jazz standards at the Coconut Grove. Now you can follow in her wake without leaving the building!

Alex Weatherhill (Chicago, HMS Pinafore) is joined by fellow West End performers Mark Pincher (Miss Saigon, Elvis) and Ria Keen (Sweet Charity, Cabaret) to salute to the stars of Broadway and Kings of Swing in this thrilling show. Packed full of toe-tapping swing and beautiful musical theatre ballads, this is a ‘must see’ from three of the best singers you will ever hear.

The Guardian said: “What a Treat” and a critic declaimed van der blast as the best thing in London during 2006.

Live music. First class singers. "Who could ask for anything more?"

Expect class. Expect humour. Expect entertainment.

Tickets: £10 (£9 concessions)
