Maria Friedman: From the Heart
Following her two-week sell-out residency at Crazy Coqs in May, Maria Friedman brings her brand-new show, Maria Friedman: From the Heart to Queen Elizabeth Hall.
In a thrilling collaboration with musical director, Theo Jamieson (Everybody's Talking about Jamie, High Society), Maria celebrates the enduring partnerships she has enjoyed with some of musical theatre’s greatest names - the full range of her musical tastes and creative inspirations in a show that journeys from Joni Mitchell to Randy Newman, from George Gershwin to Stephen Sondheim, from Marvin Hamlisch to Cole Porter. Bringing their unique spin to great songs, golden oldies, musical theatre classics, and some brand new material, this promises to be an evening of unforgettable reimagining and reinvention - of timeless stories and truly exceptional cabaret.
