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
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 for some classic songs and the odd surprise and laugh!
