The critically acclaimed one-woman show Songs For Nobodies opens at Ambassadors Theatre for a limited West End run.
The production, written by Joanna Murray Smith specifically to showcase the extraordinary vocal ability of actress Bernadette Robinson. Songs For Nobodies opens on 10th January 2019 and runs until 23rd February at Ambassador’s Theatre.
This new play features music from five iconic divas; Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf and Maria Callas.
On stage for 90 minutes accompanied by live musicians, Bernadette Robinson’s voice shifts from the smoky blues of Billie Holiday to the soprano of Maria Callas, via Garland, Cline and Piaf.
Joanna Murray Smith tells Encore Radio:
“I am thrilled that Songs For Nobodies – which is so dear to my heart, will be making a West End transfer. It is testimony to Bernadette’s performance that audiences have come back over and over again to see the show because their reaction is so deeply felt and because they feel so uplifted. They laugh, cry and contemplate defining moments in their own lives, at the same time as being totally stunned by a single performer’s inspirational ability to resurrect beloved icons.”
