Yes, Dillie Keane is back! In these uncertain times, it’s good to think one can plan for a night of cabaret with one of its most venerable artists. Obviously, Dillie hasn’t been to a hairdresser since Covid, so her increasing likeness to Ben Gunn will be one of the many highlights of the evening.
In the meantime, she promises to be rude, moving, funny and emotional; she also promises that she will stand at the back of the stage and not spit. And she swears she will not sing any terrible parodies about Covid-19. In fact, she might not mention it at all. Wouldn’t that be a relief!
Digging into her extensive back catalogue, plundering the lesser known repertoire of some of America’s funniest songwriters and even racking her own tired old brain for a couple of new numbers, she will craft 75 minutes of cabaret loveliness that will make you glad you donned your mask and risked the tube journey to this gorgeous venue. (She’d gladly do a longer show but there’s a lot of gargling with bleach and perfumes of Arabia to be applied before she can appear safely before her public.)
Dillie is thrilled to be working once more with Michael Roulston on piano – he joined the Fascinating Aïda team last year and was a resounding success.
