Last Autumn, after a twenty year hiatus, West End favourite Lorna Dallas - who originally came to prominence in London when she co-starred opposite Dame Cleo Laine in the landmark revival of Jerome Kern's Show Boat - returned to the cabaret stage with her new show, Home Again.
A rich tapestry of personal story and song, the evening was an unqualified triumph and undeniably proved that her showbiz brio and vocal prowess had gloriously withstood the test of time. Both the London and New York critics were rapturous and unstinting in their praise:
"Not to be presumptuous, but it would be a really good idea if Lorna Dallas kept coming back!" - Broadway World
"A show that is both touching and thrilling, gentle and electrifying, and that early on moved into the heart, and stayed there" - New York Bistro Awards
"I can only wish that she revives this pitch-perfect show in London for those who were not lucky enough to catch it the first time around, so you can experience first hand the return of her unique talent. This is truly a once in a life-time event not to be missed" - Cabaret Scenes
For all of those who were unable to attend any of the previous viewings, Ms. Dallas is giving two final performances of Home Again this October at Crazy Coqs. Once again, the inimitable Jason Carr will be at the piano and award-winning director, Barry Kleinbort, is at the helm.
"This is a rare soprano who has an instinct for truth that puts many of her lauded showbiz rivals to shame" - The Guardian, Michael Billington
