Description

As the daughter of Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth has witnessed, first hand, the consequences of when love goes wrong. But when the Queen falls into an unfortunate love triangle with her courtier and favourite Robert Dudley and cousin and confidante Lettice Knollys, she must reckon with the forces of history in an attempt to save her throne. Drake and Brewer’s new musical offers a unique angle into the sacrifice and personal cost it takes to be a female leader in a man’s world. Perhaps the Virgin Queen isn’t all she seems in the history books…

I saw the show yesterday and I cannot recommend it enough. The cast were phenomenal as was their clear chemistry. The leading lady was fantastic, she delivered one of the most powerful monologues I have ever had the pleasure of watching, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. An exceptional talent.

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 49 days ago

Lauren Brewer and Will Geraint Drake’s The Single Lady is a musical extravaganza, giving Elizabeth I the same treatment that Hamilton did to the Founding Fathers. Incredibly upbeat and full of fun wordplay and historical references, The Single Lady is completely unmissable.
