‘An intelligent antidote to the Jukebox Musical gravy train.’ ***** Essential Surrey
A sultry tapestry of love’s eternal struggle with passion, addiction, choice, and fate, Phaedra’s story has never been told like this before: myth fused with classic jazz and a splash of cocktails! In this innovative production, chanteuse Fae (Phaedra) guides us through the world of Greek gods, doomed love affairs and a bull-headed Minotaur - storytelling with jazz classics woven into the narrative such as ‘Mad About the Boy’, ‘One for My Baby’, ‘You Give Me Fever’, and many more.
‘not to be missed.’ **** Remote Goat Brighton
Fae is played by Pippa Winslow (Flowers for Mrs Harris, Bonnie & Clyde) in this production directed by Amelia Sciandra (13 Children, Glorious but Brief), and created by Jack Lynch (Emily Dickinson & I). It’s one for my baby and one more for the road in this cocktail of jazz standards and storytelling. Tragedy, with a twist.
‘refreshingly original’ **** Musical Theatre Review
