About Janie Dee

It is fitting that the Matcham Room opens with a home-grown West End star of the versatility, charm and wit of the "delectable Miss Dee". Aside from her plaudits on stage in London (this year in 'Noises Off') and on Broadway, Janie has sung for the Queen and Prince Charles and garnered great reviews for her sell out shows at the Donmar and the Pheasantry. She begins our season with an evening that speaks to the Hippodrome's 'Talk of the Town' heritage with a glamorous, vintage blend of Gershwin, Coward, Berlin, Bacharach and brought up to date with Alan Ayckbourn, Gerard Kenney, Christopher Cross as well as Britain's up and coming songwriters. Blended together with anecdotes both theatrical and sometimes domestic, expect to hear beautiful music sung in Janie's distinctive honeyed voice in an evening that is comic and joyful with a few surprises....
