First Lady of Musical Theatre Elaine Paige brings her show hits to Aberystwyth!
Olivier award-winning actress, broadcaster and musical theatre stalwart Elaine Paige has announced a concert at Aberystwyth’s Arts Centre.
The First Lady of Musical Theatre Elaine Paige is set to bring the West End and Broadway hits which made her famous to Aberystwyth this November. Elaine, who won a Lawrence Olivier award for her performance in Evita, has starred in more smash hit musicals than anyone else of her generation. Elaine will perform many of the songs that made her a global star.
As a recording artist Elaine has released 22 solo albums, including 4 multi-Platinum and 9 Gold, has featured on 7 cast recordings and has had major worldwide hits. She became a household name with songs such as 'Memory' from Lloyd-Webber’s Cats, and 'I Know Him So Well' from Chess by Abba’s Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. She has performed live in concert all over the world.
Elaine presents the hugely successful weekly BBC Radio 2 programme “Elaine Paige on Sunday”, which celebrates the best of Broadway, Hollywood and the West End, and delights audiences of over 2.5 million listeners each week.
Elaine made her first professional appearance on stage nearly fifty years ago, at the age of 16 and it was her appearance in the 1968 production of Hair that marked her West End debut.
"A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch the lady who has quite rightly been given the epithet 'First Lady Of Musical Theatre' in an intimate, informal concert of epic proportion! A thousand times ‘bravo!” North West End
