Off the back of an acclaimed sold out run at the 2018 London Jazz Festival, actress and singer Camilla Beeput (Save Me, Peep Show, Grantchester) and her 5 piece band return to London in what The Times called ‘A bravura display’, celebrating the life of one of the most significant Black figures in 20th Century entertainment; the iconic singer, actor and activist Lena Horne.

Under the musical direction of Alex Webb (Cafe Society Swing), the creative mentorship of Olivier award winner Clarke Peters (Five Guys Named Moe, The Wire), and the inspired direction of Maxwell Golden (Sadler’s Wells, Fagin’s Twist) this captivating theatrical production includes a host of original and classic musical numbers that evoke the eras of Horne’s long and ground-breaking 60 year career. From 1920s Harlem to the golden era of Hollywood, through WWII to the Civil Rights Movement and culminating in her triumphant return to Broadway, 'Lena' narrates her life directly to the audience.

Playing out dramatic vignettes, Beeput transforms into a number of Horne's loves, ghosts and demons, including Ava Gardner, Billie Holliday and Cab Calloway. This extraordinary one-woman musical promises to be a truly unforgettable experience.
