BEST MUSICAL VARIETY ACT 2013 – London Cabaret Awards
Adored by millions, Dame Julie Andrews is a genuine legend of entertainment. But do Maria Von Trapp or Mary Poppins long to let their hair down at the end of a hard day? Find out in this cheeky yet affectionate cabaret with the award-winning singer, West End actress and Fascinating Aida star Sarah-Louise Young, who was recently picked by Time Out as one of London’s top ten cabaret performers.
Julie’s songs from musicals including Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music and My Fair Lady blend with stories and anecdotes about Andrews’ life, from her beginnings as a child star to the recent challenges of losing her famous singing voice. What emerges is a delightfully funny and candid love letter to a true show business survivor.
