"There are far too many wonderful moments to mention in one review. As well as having superb vocals… she is also an established, versatile actress. Ross had the audience in stitches. An irrefutable and inspiring talent." ***** OneStopArts.com
DON'T ASK THE LADY…! is a unique one-woman show, celebrating the creative spirit of 20th century female songwriters, whose talent, tenacity and determination overcame obstacles in a field where many were discouraged - it was simply not considered 'women's work'.
Through Julie Ross' own "special blend of humorous and touching cabaret", you'll discover rarely heard gems and popular classics by the likes of Dorothy Fields, Edith Piaf, Joni Mitchell, Dillie Keane and many more, as well as hear the stories of how these great and wonderful songs came to life.
Julie began her career in Australia, appearing in musicals such as Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar, and television soap operas Young Doctors and Sons & Daughters. Since arriving in the UK, her theatre credits have included leading roles in South Pacific, Company, Follies, Be my Baby and Little Me.
"…a clever, witty cabaret packed with show-stopping,
foot-tapping and heart-warming songs. This is an evening and a
personality to remember." ***** Remotegoat.com
"Ross… holds her audience spellbound. The passion with which she delivers both the songs and the stories behind them... leaves me salivating for more." Aussietheatre.com
"Ross is as fine an actress as she is a vocalist. She doesn't just sing, she interprets. I have always loved the melody of Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now but never quite understood the lyric. But in the hands of Ross's heartfelt vocals that seem to reflect life experience, the meaning became clear, and it brought tears to my eyes." UK Theatre Network
