SpaceDating: London - Paris - Roam!

Broadway Baby and Sarah Tullamore get to chatting about her, her show London - Paris - Roam! and her love of Shiraz...

Musical theatre and cabaret singer/actress/musician who has lived in Italy, Japan and France for the last 20 years and is now back performing in the UK and what a way to do it with my new one-woman musical show that I have written with my fab composer, James Burn.


Tell us about yourself….

Well, let’s see… Exuberant, loyal, joyful, optimistic, perfectionist, hardworking, silly, creative, stubborn, informed, forthright, sensitive, idealistic, self-doubting, argumentative, tenacious, considerate…will pursue something to its limits if I believe in it enough. Which I guess explains why I’m here with my new one-woman show, London-Paris-Roam!

Musical theatre and cabaret singer/actress/musician who has lived in Italy, Japan and France for the last 20 years and is now back performing in the UK and what a way to do it with my new one-woman musical show that I have written with my fab composer, James Burn. Accompanied by my pianist John Florencio and directed by Fred Baptiste.

Do you come here often?

No it’s my first time. I am an official Edinburgh virgin. Gah!

Who do you most want to meet at the festival?

The people! As in, the festivalgoers, the audiences and general public in the streets, venues, bars and restaurants. We performers can’t do anything without an audience and I am dying to meet all these people who come from far and wide to support the arts, immerse themselves in shows and discover new talent. Not to mention to try and do a fab show for them and give them a memorable festival experience.

What’s your passion? Singing. Followed very very closely by my family, fab friends and lashings of red wine. Preferably Shiraz…

Are you monogamous to EdFringe, or do you date other festivals?

Well, I admit I HAVE dated elsewhere… I did the Avignon Fringe Festival (the French equivalent of Edinburgh) with my very first one-woman musical show called Estelle Bright and I have just performed London – Paris – Roam! in the brand new Paris Fringe Festival, an English-language festival of theatre, comedy and music that ran for the first time in Paris the last week of May. Great experience; so much enthusiasm in Paris for English-language productions, very surprising and encouraging. And I sold out ! So very happy about that and am hoping it bodes well for Edinburgh.

Can we get a second date?

Why absolutely dear Broadway Baby! Crack open the Shiraz and let’s get talking…

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this article has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
