Back by popular demand, Ceili O'Connor's one woman show, The Understudy - (runner up for Theatremates Best Cabaret Award) - is back in London!
A unique and unfortunate series of events meant fate had never allowed Ceili to go on in the leading lady roles she understudied in the last 10 years, until now. After being part of the international tour of CATS playing Gumbie/Jennyanydots, she finally got her big break and went on a number of times for arguably one of the most iconic leading ladies in theatre, 'Grizabella', singing one of Andrew Lloyd Webbers greatest songs, Memory.
Ceili was recently recognised for spontaneously singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow at St Pancras with Denis Robinson on the piano after a video posted online went viral within minutes. Now with over 15 million views across the world, it really has caused quite a stir.
Ceili has new stories to tell, new songs to sing and new sketches to share. If you'd like a night of laughter, an eclectic array of great music and little ditties then this is the perfect night out for you. There will also be some familiar faces joining her for a duet or two.
Ceili will be joined by musical director, Tim Evans.
