Discover the story of this multitalented singer and trumpeter and his bizarre relationship with Keely. Share in their comedic and slightly bizarre on-stage relationship which propelled them to fame in the 50s swing boom.. Keely Smith (Sarah Harris): hailed by Tony Bennett as one of the greatest jazz-pop singers of all time singing alongside Grammy award-winning Prima (Gary Wright) together conquering the Las Vegas boulevards with saxophonist Sam Butera (Alex Bondonno) at their side.Enjoy a night of high energy swing, beautiful jazz ballads, with more than a few laughs along the way.

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 review 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

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.
