Gertrude Lawrence: A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening

The 1930’s 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 50’s.

This 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 (An Evening Without Kate Bush and Julie Madly Deeply). Lucy Stevens has cleverly crafted a new vibrant script using Gertrude Lawrence’s autobiography 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 night clubs and the bright lights of Broadway
