What Would Julie Do? Live
Do you love show tunes? Do you sometimes feel like you could use a spoonful of guidance to help living life that little bit easier? Well, never fear, ‘What Would Julie Do?’ is here!!
A few times a year, we bring you an all new evening of musical theatre therapy, hosted by yours truly (that’s me, Rosie…. not Julie Andrews herself, alas!) and showcasing emerging and established stars of musical theatre at one of London’s top cabaret venues, The Pheasantry (Pizza Express Live, Chelsea).
Each show supports a different charity and the songs in the show are themed around this cause. We have a different West End performer headlining and a fresh group of emerging musical theatre artists at each show. We share songs and stories about our favourite things, try to figure out how to solve problems (like Maria), find the fun (until even the dullest job is a game) and explain how show tunes can help make sense of our crazy lives. Expect much loved and lesser known musical theatre numbers and modern twists on Julie Andrews’ classics.
We previewed our new body positivity themed cabaret “My Body” at the Toulouse Lautrec Brasserie on Tuesday 18th June as part of Accalia Arts Festival. We are sharing a double bill of cabaret with wonderful performer (and one of ‘me Juliez’), Ciara Power.
The full “My Body” cabaret will be performed at the Pheasantry on Sunday 30th June 2019. We will be singing about self image and body confidence and raising money for BEAT (the UK eating disorder charity). Our headliner is the wonderful Charlotte Jaconelli (Heathers, Sweet Charity) and the show till also feature Catherine Millsom (Kinky Boots), Lucy Clough, Jacqueline Ozorio, Esme Sears and is hosted by Rosie Williamson with musical direction by Matthew Samer.
“If you’re looking for some self-help and positivity in your life, look no further than to this cabaret gem.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – West End Wilma
“The harmonies, sprinkled across the first half and then at both ends of the second, were beautiful – a real pleasure and delight to listen to.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Chris Omaweng, London Theatre 1 (www.londontheatre1.com)
“The re-worked songs hilarious but always respectful of their origins, What Would Julie Do? Live is a joyous evening full of laughter, tears and a reminder to look after yourself and each other.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Stuart James, theatre blogger (https://stuartjamesnz.wordpress.com)
“Rosie Williamson creates a wonderfully pleasant evening…No two shows are the same, performing different material each time with reworked lyrics for topical or comedic value…A hugely funny ‘How Do You Solve a Problem Like Self-loathing’ was also worked into the set with all three [performers] singing in harmony and taking solo lines, – the audience, meanwhile, was in stitches.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Musical Theatre Review
