Well-Behaved Women, a new song cycle by Carmel Dean celebrating women across history comes to Cadogan Hall on Friday 3 September 2021.
The cast comprises Maisey Bawden (Lady Liberty), Anna-Jane Casey (Billie Jean King and Janet Armstrong), Janie Dee (Eleanor Roosevelt), Nicole Raquel Dennis (Eve), Hiba Elchikhe (Cleopatra and Malala Yousafzai), Kerry Ellis (Boudicca), Gabriela García (Frida Kahlo), Cassidy Janson (Virginia Woolf), Rachel John (Maya Angelou), Linda John-Pierre (Harriet Tubman) and Rachael Wooding (Mary Magdalene), accompanied by an all-female live band.
What would Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Harriet Tubman, Frida Kahlo, and Malala Yousafzai sound like if you heard them sing? Find out in Well-Behaved Women, a new collection of songs by Carmel Dean. These women – and more – will be brought to life by some of the West End’s finest leading ladies, and through these powerful and often hilarious songs, will celebrate the ways in which their bad-ass behaviour helped them make history.
Well-Behaved Women is a wonderful ode to the fierce famous females from history, with their stories of courage, strength and resilience memorialised through a range of musical styles from rock and jazz to country.
