"Sexy, sleazy,sizzling and fabulous to witness... Samuels and Dixon demonstrate their capacity for deep, bittersweet emotion through music which contrasts with their great comic timing... Samuels is one of London's outstanding cabaret performers whilst as an actress and singer Dixon is a revelation... This review comes with a strong recommendation to catch this show." Lisa Martland, Musical Theatre Review.
Lucy Dixon and Howard Samuels are delighted to return to Crazy Coqs for three performances of their sell-out show INVADE MY PRIVACY, a cabaret devoted to the genius that is and was Fran Landesman
Dixon and Samuels first met in the Sondheim musical Company and worked together again in the National Theatre's production of Frogs before pairing up with director Linda Marlowe on the highly acclaimed original production of INVADE MY PRIVACY (Riverside Studios, Kings Head and Criterion Theatre).
The show is once again directed by Linda Marlowe and backed by the glorious piano playing of Gary Jerry.
Fran Landesman was a beat poet, songwriter and lifelong bohemian until her death in July 2011. Her work combines pathos and humour and glows with a tough wisdom gleaned from a lifestime of riding in fast convertibles and hanging out in smoky bars. She was asked out for tea by an admiring Bette Davis and labelled "..one of my heroes" by Tom Waits. Occupying the ironic territory between Dorothy Parker and Stephen Sondheim, her frank, piercing insights into family affairs and tangled romances take no prisoners. Book now, cabaret will never be the same.
