Sex, scandal and showbiz in 1940s London. Read More >

Northern lass Maggie Brown has moved to ’40s London in search of fame. She auditions at every cabaret bar, with her songwriter George, but nobody wants their act. Things aren’t much better with her boyfriend Tom. And her brother Harry’s missing in action.

Everything changes when Maggie and George are picked up by the charming nightclub owner Sir Frank. Soon ‘Miss Nightingale’ explodes onto the stage – shocking society with her outrageous outfits and saucy songs. She takes the West End by storm.

But off stage romance and sexual tensions reveal secrets more dangerous than the Blitz.

Featuring 20 original numbers performed by a talented troop of actor musicians, including Ilan Goodman and burlesque supernova Amber Topaz. Miss Nightingale – The Burlesque Musical brings the vintage glamour of war-torn London thrillingly to life.
