“Dillie Keane exudes faded glamour, a bit like Brighton seafront” ~ Daily Mail ?????
Join two of international cabaret’s Grandest of Dames, Dillie Keane and Barb Jungr, as they jump giblets-first into the festive season with this Ropetackle exclusive.
Last Christmas these two giants performed side-by-side for the first time and proved that this is definitely an evening not to be mistletoed. No way. Featuring songs by Tom Waits, Ray Davies, John Legend and an hilarious take on the Twelve Days of Christmas, among many more, this is not your standard Christmas fare.
You will want second helpings of this rich pudding for sure. Dillie Keane is known worldwide as a founder member of the legendary Fascinating Aida and has played pretty much every theatre in the country and far beyond. Barb Jungr is known worldwide for her work on Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen’s songs, and as a radical interpreter of the New American Songbook.
Dillie and Barb will be accompanied by Jenny Carr (Jason Donovan, Beverley Craven, Billy Ocean) on piano. The glorious harmonies, musicality, emotion and fun on offer are a total festive experience.
Group discount available for 10+ tickets purchased in a single transaction.
