About the Show Less...

Linda Thompson returns to the Lyric for three nights only after her sell-out visit here in 2002 – this time with a very different repertoire. Read More >

In the unique intimacy of the Lyric’s Victorian auditorium, she brings her distinctive voice to an evening of ‘cheap’ music – the ballads, character-songs and popular tearjerkers of music-hall, variety and vaudeville.

She will be joined on stage by a three piece band and by a different line-up of guest artists each night including Justin Bond (aka Kiki from Kiki & Herb). The evening will be staged by Neil Bartlett.
