Miss-Leading Ladies to play at St James Studio Theatre this August
Miss-Leading Ladies is a whirlpool of illusion, captivating chemistry and a delightful homage to those revered leading ladies of a bygone golden era.
Singularly sensational, but together a tour de force, when they combine their talents into a unique theatrical experience. After all, what other actress can lay claim to having played both Evita and Mrs Overall in her career, and what other actor can lay claim to have walked in the shoes of every legendary leading lady. A celebratory evening that will long remain in the memory of those quick enough to have secured tickets.
