Description

A cabaret with songs and stories about love, and loss of love (and cake crops up too). Performed by men, of a certain age, who prize the melodies and the pure poetry of the lyrics of the Gershwin’s, Mercer, Ellington etc. and of songs sung by Fred Astaire and the like. The songs are interspersed with some stories relating to love, loss of love and, yes, cake. They have a long experience of all three and that gives the show some depth. It is a gentle, humorous journey through these subjects.

The show was excellent and full of love, loss, cake and tickles. It was wonderful and enjoyable for all ages. I still can't get the songs out of my head! The stories and songs were linked together with magic, turning the wonderful show into a dream blanket, stitched with love, loss and cake. Well done Malcolm, Jeremy and Nick!
