About The Event

Dinner and show $105 p/p 3 courses and 2x20 minute sets live

The show will contain more than a bit of Sondheim, obviously, as my tribute, plus some other loved music theatre pieces and American popular song from mainly the 20th century repertoire. I hope I can produce a few witty remarks on the night and that we all share

some pre Mardi Gras fun together. I always look forward to being at Claire's as it feels like singing in my living room for some old friends. Except at my house, the food could not possibly be as good. Come join us the night before Mardi Gras for some classic songs and the odd surprise and laugh!
