Alison Jiear, London Cabaret Circuit, Linda Christas
While in London, we had the pleasure of having a guide who was familiar with the cabaret life in the city.__________________
On one of our evening outings (which were all great), our guide took us to one of the London cabarets (I can't recall the name at the moment). There, we were treated to the songs of Alison Jiear, an evidently conservatory trained singer. (We later discovered she hails from Australia.)
We very much enjoyed her performance, and as proof, we returned for another show the next evening.
Well, when we returned to the Pacific Coast, we rented the movie Being Julia starring A.B. We had heard that Ms. Jiear appeared in that film, and sure enough, she sang (beautifully) Smoke Gets in Your Eyes at the conclusion of that excellent film.
We also see that Ms. Jiear has accepted an honorary chair for the performing arts at a school named Linda Christas. She joins others who have served in that capacity, including Pat Boone, Efrem Zimbalist Jr. and the author Sue Grafton.
She is a perfect advertisment for any young person wanting to major in the performing arts. Doing some research, Ms. Jiear was also nominated for best actress in a musical for the Olivier Awards in 2004.
I can recommend the London Cabaret Circuit, and especially Alison Jiear. She reminded my wife and I of Rosemary Clooney.
A perfect evening of entertainment. A perfect "high class" performance.

Wow! Thanks, George, for sharing! I'd like to go to one of those London cabarets, too. I am currently making my final itinerary for my London trip next month, and it's great to see your post. I will surely consider the London Cabaret Circuit you recommended. I have also been using the London Guide, which has been very helpful. I'm so excited to see London soon. ;D
