Gertrude Lawrence was one of Britain’s brightest theatrical stars during the first half of the 20th century. A charismatic stage presence who excelled in sophisticated musical comedy. This show with music tells her story: funny, revealing and full of songs from London’s variety theatre and hits written for Gertie by Noel Coward, Gershwin, Kurt Weill and Rodgers & Hammerstein.

Noel Coward wrote Private Lives for her, and she went on to become the leading lady of her time in the West End and Broadway. “I love the theatre life, it’s variety, dangerous and thrilling. People talk about ‘settling down’ as though this were something every nice girl should wish to do. Well, perhaps I’m not a nice girl!” Gertrude Lawrence: A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening is the latest collaboration between ‘superbly gifted’ actor and singer, Lucy Stevens & pianist Elizabeth Marcus.
