It’s one for my baby and one more for the road in this cocktail of jazz standards and storytelling. Tragedy, with a twist…
Filled with songs, including Mad About the Boy, You’re Getting to Be a Habit with Me, Fever and many more made famous by legendary jazz divas such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and of course Peggy Lee.
The play creates a sultry tapestry of love’s eternal struggle with passion, addiction, choice and fate.
Phaedra is one of the classic tragic heroines of Greek theatre, but you’ve not heard her story like this before, complete with a twist at the end. It’s a classic tragedy backed up by some classy jazz standards and tasty cocktails.
Written by Jack Lynch (Emily Dickinson & I; Cloning Mary Shelley; Consider This…) with Pippa Winslow (The Phantom of the Opera, The Sound of Music, Hairspray) as ‘Fey’ and James Shannon on jazz guitar.
