The 1930s star of musical comedy tells her own story in her own words.
With funny, pacy dialogue which is bursting with songs from Variety and Revue to hits by Noël Coward and Kurt Weill.
A theatrical cabaret performed by Lucy Stevens with pianist Elizabeth Marcus. Directed by award-winning cabaret artist Sarah-Louise Young.
Lucy’s performance embodies the spirit of Gertie – a feisty, strong woman from Clapham who transcended the class ceiling, forging her stage and screen career into her 50s. This cleverly crafted new, vibrant script transports the audience from her childhood in Clapham to London’s swanky night clubs and the bright lights of Broadway.
Nominated for an OffFest Award
