Join Helen Goldwyn in her uproarious one-woman show, “A Funny Stage.” As a ‘polymath extraordinaire’, Helen’s talents as an award-winning singer, actor, writer, and composer ensure a night of entertainment like no other.
In this delightful exploration of the funny phases we encounter in life, Helen’s original five-star comedy songs take centre stage, alongside some of her favourite musical-theatre classics. From hilarious, bitter-and-twisted true stories to poignant reflections on life’s unpredictability, Helen weaves a musical tapestry covering themes such as fandom, feminism, unrequited love, smutty cooking and thwarted ambition.
Don’t miss the chance to revel in a night that will leave you laughing, crying and celebrating the absurdity of the human experience.
A portion of proceeds will be donated to The Migraine Trust Charity.
Presented by OnBook Theatre.
★★★★★ “The performance, the words, the music and the costumes oozed sophistication and talent consistently.” “Helen has skilfully created songs that stand alone both lyrically, and work well together in exploring the human struggle. You’ll either be laughing with joy or crying with sadness.” “The show is a total triumph, a celebration of womanhood” Faye Stockley, LondonTheatre1
★★★★★ “The songs are honest, relevant, sophisticated….all of them could easily have come out of successful West End musicals…” “A class act…She has a bit of the Bette Midler about her, even perhaps a hint of Ethel Merman.” “Helen Goldwyn’s songs are exceptionally good…..a routine visit to a show turned out to be something very special indeed which I thoroughly enjoyed.“ Michael Hasted, Stagetalkmagazine.com
“…brilliant lyrics written by Helen, and fantastic singing ….raunchy and upbeat….lots of attitude and personality.” “made us laugh and cry all at the same time…” Amanda Brodie, Quay Theatre, Sudbury
