(Venue 54 - North Bridge - 0870 701 5105 - http://www.edfringe.com/
) August 15th through 30th at 8:30 pm. Musical director will be Barney
Hulse. Layne will be following in the footsteps of the late, great
Beatrice Lillie brought "Late Evening with Beatrice Lillie" to the
Edinburgh Festival in 1960. To date, the show has played in New York
City, San Francisco, Palm Desert, Atlanta, and Charleston, SC, as
well as in smaller towns and rather surprising places in the USA.
This is Ms. Littlepage's European debut.
Lillie was hailed as the 'funniest woman in the world'. Some say she
invented "camp". She was a legend in her lifetime. She was the inspiration
for both Mary Poppins and Auntie Mame. She worked with musical and
literary greats including Noel Coward, Cole Porter, George Bernard
Shaw, Irving Berlin, Richard Rodgers, Ivor Novello and Moss Hart.
She also married a Lord. As portrayed by Layne Littlepage, "An Evening
with Beatrice Lillie" is a delightful hour of music, comedy, roller
skates and pearls. Barney Hulse, an accomplished conductor, composer
and Musical Director, accompanies Layne, or rather Beatrice, on the
Theatre at university, Layne dropped out of acting to study classical
voice, and has sung with the New American Opera Theatre, the Mannes
Mozart Project and New York Grand Opera. An Evening with Beatrice
Lillie is the culmination of Layne's passion for the great performer's
