“INCREDIBLE performance – beautiful important work.” Suba Das, AD of Hightide

“Sensational – I knew it would be!” Julia Sowerbutts, AD of Ink Festival

“Congratulations to everyone involved with LADY OF JAZZ – a wonderful show!” Will Mytum,  Tristan Bates Theatre

“Michaela Bennison is wonderful.” Chichester Observer

An uplifting evocation of 1920s jazz and blues, and the gripping story of Honey Grey, lead singer in her Daddy’s band. She sings her own brilliant ragtime, Charleston and stride – inspired by Bessie Smith, Ethel Waters and Louis Armstrong – as well as standards like ‘Careless Love’, ‘Frankie & Johnnie’, ‘Ain’t Nobody’s Business’, ‘Nobody loves you when you’re down and out’ …

But Honey is living a lie and that’s a dangerous thing to do in the 1920s in the South.

Starring the incredible Michaela Bennison in her first major leading role.
