I’m a Woman : Kate Dimbleby celebrates her heroines of song
Kate and the band finished a hugely successful 5 WEEK RUN of their critically acclaimed new show “I’m a Woman :Kate Dimbleby celebrates her heroines of song” at the New End Theatre, Hampstead at the beginning of October 2010.
The touring show, now titled “NICE GIRLS DON’T SING THE BLUES” is now touring venues in the UK.
Directed by Cal McCrystal featuring the Honky Tonk Angels : Naadia Sheriff on piano and vocals; Jonty Fisher on bass and vocals; Sophie Alloway on drums and Chris Allard on guitar and vocals.
A musical cabaret performed by jazz singer Kate Dimbleby about women at work, home and play as sung out by legends such as Sophie Tucker, Bessie Smith, Nina Simone, Peggy Lee and Dolly Parton.
Drawing on some of the best songs and songstresses of the past century for inspiration, Kate, returns (after an extended maternity leave!) with a new show that grapples with the highs and lows of being a woman in the generation of women who have been told they can “have it all”.
