I really enjoyed Beth Burrows’ performance in Chekhov’s The Lady with a Dog, which transferred from the White Bear to the Tabard Theatre this past spring. I’m delighted that she’s now reprising three more legendary performances in one… and that I get to quiz her about it.
Following its run last November at Highgate’s Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Sirens of the Silver Screen, starring Beth Burrows and directed by Mark Giesser, now transfers for a strictly limited summer season at west London’s Tabard Theatre.
A new adventure into old Hollywood in song and story.
Judy Garland, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe – this sisterhood of stunning starlets lit up the silver screen for decades and kept tongues wagging with their scandalous off-screen antics. Prepare to be transported to a world of Old Hollywood glamour, where fame, fate and misfortune collide in glitz, glamour and grim truths.
These femme fatales live again as Beth Burrows takes on each famous woman, performing their most loved songs and shedding light on the shadowy secrets that stalked their careers.
“Gorgeous vocals, stunning stories & tremendously entertaining” – ★★★★ London Pub Theatres
“An accomplished & well executed piece of musical theatre which has a charm & delicate sophistication to it that warrants a firm thumbs up. Stylish entertainment” – ★★★★ Boyz
“Sirens of the Silver Screen assures us that these women are not just pin-ups, but tragic victims of Hollywood. Sensitively directed by Mark Giesser, each song set off as many tears as genuine laughter” – ★★★★ Hiive
Burrows created and performs in Sirens of the Silver Screen, which she has toured extensively internationally. Most recently on the London stage, she won critical acclaim for her title performance in The Lady With a Dog, Giesser’s new Jazz Age adaptation of Chekhov’s 1899 short story.
