MELODY LA ROUGE RETURNS TO LONDON - LIMITED RUN!
July 29th - August 1st @ 8pm
Tickets: £8 / £6 (conc.)
Cabaret, Chicago & All That Jazz... Kander & Ebb wrote them all. Diva-Chanteuse, Melody La Rouge sings them all in this affectionate tribute to Broadway's best!
Multiple Tony Award winners Kander & Ebb have been responsible for some of the greatest creations of the American musical stage. Melody La Rouge is a performer in the grand tradition of power singers such as Liza Minnelli and Chita Rivera – with an astonishing vocal range and commitment to rival the greats. In fact, Ms La Rouge has always wanted to be Liza Minnelli – and this is her time to shine!
Melody La Rouge is aka singer and actress Kerry Jo Hodgkin. A 33 Records recording artiste and vocalist with Kerry Jo Hodgkin & The Blue Steelers and Hodgkin & Miller. She has sung everywhere from Ronnie Scott's in London to BB King's in New York. However, in 2010 she began to sing on the London Cabaret/Burlesque scene - loved it - and in 2011 Melody La Rouge was born!

"From Cabaret to Chicago, Ms Melody La Rouge sings and narrates this biographical one-woman show with all the pizzazz of Liza Minnelli and Chita Rivera... Hodgkin has a strong voice, well suited to the genre, and sparkles with life in each of the songs." OneStopArts.com
"Melody La Rouge is feisty, busty, ballsy and can sing the roof off of any theatre." WestEndWilma
"oozing the showbiz glitz of the songs and the sexiness of cabaret… a well-sung set of much-loved standards by a charismatic performer." Fest
"Ms La Rouge is not only a talented singer but is also adept at using her acting talents to heighten each song with the necessary emotional requirement... her performance, as the song has it, made coming to the cabaret very much worthwhile." The Argus (2011)
