  • “Tarts and barmaids. I just took whatever came along!”

    West End Diva Rosie Ashe pays tribute to national treasure Dora Bryan, whose showbiz career spanned eight decades!

She made millions laugh, but her personal life was a rollercoaster. Expect fun, music & laughter with excerpts from Hello Dolly, The Water Gypsies and many more.

    Musical Direction: Paul Knight


    “It takes a star to play a star, and no one needs to worry about Rosemary Ashe’s portrayal of musical comedy legend Dora Bryan. She is pitch perfect in her singing and characterisation – you close your eyes, you hear Dora. But this is no sanitised tribute show. Adorable Dora, written by West End star Rosemary in lockdown, gives us the highs and lows of Dora’s career and her life in Brighton”- Brighton Fringe Review

    “Her characterisation’s perfect, the gamut of voices superbly nuanced, and the show itself, whilst light, points up the darkness with a few telling songs I wish we had more of. But that’s not Dora’s way. Consummate, the complete Dolly-d up experience”- Fringe Online.
