Description

The boy I love is up in the gallery. And I can’t even get a seat in the crowd. How did a music hall sweetheart and pantomime star end up nothing more than a small blue plaque in Islington? Let Nelly Power take you through the highs and lows of a life lived in theatre. And as for how it all went so wrong? Well, Nelly has a few ideas and Miss Marie Lloyd features in most of them! Lottie Walker appears as Nelly Power, now almost-forgotten star of the Victorian music hall.

Captivated by this engaging portrayal of the Victorian music hall era and the rise and fall of variety stalwart, Nelly Power. Superb performance! Highly recommended!

Intimate portrayal of a music hall superstar eclipsed by rival Miss Marie Lloyd. An engaging authentic performance that sheds a light on the era. A rare gem (just don’t ask Nelly where her jewellery went!). One not to miss.

Lovely atmosphere as Nelly Power confides in you. You join her for a sing song and listen to her story. Very engaging show... recommended!!
