The 1930's star of musical comedy tells her own story in her own words. 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. 

★★★★★ 'Lucy Stevens gives a tremendous performance as the grande dame, socking out a fantastic selection of songs … Beautifully structured and charmingly portrayed.  The audience loved it – Top class entertainment!' Chris Sparkle 

★★★★★ 'This is a quality show, with Stevens performing no fewer than 22 songs the way songs used to be sung - her classically trained contralto voice soaring, and with perfect diction … a truly fascinating and colourful life story, told with passion, humour and not a little drama. I loved it!' UK Theatre Network

'Portrayed with much heart by the talented actress and singer Lucy Stevens... The audience was enthralled from the first moment and laughed and cried. …There were stifled sniffles when Stevens and Marcus took their curtain call to a deserved thunderous applause.' Fringe Review 

Nominated for an OffFest Award.
