Dame Patricia Routledge: Facing The Music – A Life in Musical Theatre Tickets

London Concerts
Meet the legendary Dame Patricia Routledge in Facing The Music – A Life in Musical Theatre
It is still one of the best kept secrets in show business that Patricia Routledge trained not only as an actress but also as a singer and had considerable experience and success in musical theatre, both in this country and in the USA. Her many awards include a Tony for her Broadway performance in the Styne-Harburg musical “Darling of the Day” and a Laurence Olivier Award for her performance in Leonard Bernstein’s “Candide”. Her one woman show “Come for the Ride” toured the UK in 1988 and in 1992 she played Nettie Fowler in the highly acclaimed production of “Carousel” at the National Theatre. In 1998 she was honoured with the Gold Badge of Merit by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors. In this fascinating encounter with the writer, presenter and broadcaster Edward Seckerson she recalls this very special part of her career with access to some rare and treasured recordings. Presented by Fane Productions as part of the ‘Sunday Encounters at the Haymarket’ season.

    A most wonderful, unforgettable afternoon. 3 hours went by so quickly. It was a joy from beginning to end.

    A wonderful and informative entertainment for a Sunday afternoon and we were not blasted out of our seats with over amplification which unfortunately happens in most West End theatres these days.

    Absolutely loved listening to Dame Patricia Routledge. I had no knowledge of her musical career until I saw the email advertising this show. She is naturally funny and listening to the recordings of her singing voice an absolute joy. Brilliant.
