Cabaret Returns to The Savoy
London Sunday, April 22, 2012
Jewelbox – An Evening of Cabaret and Burlesque The Beaufort Bar, Sunday 22nd April
In 1929, The Savoy introduced cabaret evenings with well-known performers of the day, novelty acts and exotic dancers such as Miss La Jana and Oreste Noverro. Over 80 years later, cabaret returns to The Savoy on Sunday April 22 with Jewelbox - An Evening of Cabaret & Burlesque in the stunning surroundings of the Beaufort Bar. The evening will be hosted by Miss Holly Penfield and will feature performances by the renowned Polly Rae, Dusty Limits, Kitty Bang Bang, Tricity Vogue and Stephen Williams.
Hostess, Holly Penfield, has been described as “a glitterball of passion, glamour and joie de vivre” and has already made her mark at The Savoy with a regular Thursday night residency at the Beaufort Bar. Performing on the hotel’s original cabaret stage has inspired her to draw on the rich theatrical history of The Savoy to put together an evening of scintillating entertainment that combines old-fashion glamour with performers from London’s “new cabaret” scene.
Her co-host for the evening will be the award-winning Dusty Limits, known as “the compere without compare.” They will be introducing an opening night line-up that includes the international burlesque sensation Polly Rae, who recently starred in the West End production “The Hurly Burly Show” and Kitty Bang Bang, a cabaret chameleon whose work ranges from 50’s glamour puss to rock’n’roll. Tricity Vogue, known as the queen of ukulele, will also perform alongside Stephen Williams, who has amazed audiences around the world with his athletic prowess.
The Beaufort Bar opens at 7.00pm on Sunday 22 April and the show will start at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £25 per person and can be booked by calling 020 7420 2111 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
. Future performances of Jewelbox are scheduled for Sunday 20th May and Sunday 1st July.
Notes to the Editor:
A British icon since 1889, The Savoy, A Fairmont Managed Hotel reopened on 10.10.10 after one of the most ambitious restorations in British history. The hotel seamlessly blends elements of the original and the new while the stunning English Edwardian and Art Deco interiors sparkle with timeless elegance and glamour. The 268 guestrooms and suites are the last word in style, luxury and discreet technology with stunning views of London and the River Thames. Nine ‘personality suites’ have been styled after some of The Savoy’s most high profile guests, including Maria Callas and Noel Coward while a newly created 2-bedroom Royal Suite is truly a suite fit for a King.
