In 2017, American born West End favorite, Lorna Dallas, returned to the cabaret world after a twenty year hiatus. The reviewers were unanimous and unstinting in their praise. Cabaret Scenes raved it was "truly a once in a lifetime event not to be missed". Rex Reed of the Observer also chimed in that the night had "the kind of inspired singing that is as rare as a pink unicorn in MGM Technicolor".
This season, Ms. Dallas returns to Crazy Coqs with a sparkling new show, Stages, devised by her two long time collaborators, musical director Christopher Denny and director Barry Kleinbort.
Stages refers to those theatres and nightclubs where Ms. Dallas displayed her formidable gifts as a singer and top tier interpreter of popular song, as well as to the formative stages in a life. Stages that have taken her from a small town in Southern Illinois to the rarefied hothouse atmosphere of New Orleans and on to dazzling nights in the West End with Sammy Cahn and Dame Cleo Laine (culminating in Royal Command performances for Queen Elizabeth and the Royal Family). The musical program is equally diverse, ranging from unforgettable standards and show tunes written by Broadway's greats to little known but equally worthy gems culled from both sides of the 'pond'.
In short, Stages offers a treasure trove of glorious singing, intimate detail and heartfelt reminiscence. And, like Ms. Dallas' previous outing, another evening "not to be missed."
