Acclaimed singer/pianist Joanna Eden finally owns up to her passion for musical theatre and treads the line between jazz cool and heart-filled storytelling. Joanna is joined by the world class George Double Trio featuring George Double (Shirley Bassey) on drums, Russell Swift (Harry Conick Jnr, Blur) on bass and multi-instrumentalist Gerry Hunt (Roberto Pla).
Launched at the EFG London Jazz Festival to much acclaim this show is a must for those who have a passion for jazz and musical theatre.
Joanna Eden shows her adoration of the music of ‘The Godfather of Modern Musical Theatre’ Stephen Sondheim. Covering Sondheim’s work from West Side Story to Into the Woods, Joanna explores the jazzy side of Sondheim without losing the theatrical truth.
To bring an authentic musical theatre sound to proceedings, Joanna is joined by special guest, accomplished musical theatre actress Leigh McDonald (National Theatre’s Olivier Winning cast of Honk and Mamma Mia)
