LATE NIGHT WITH LUCY Moves to a Larger Venue for Stratford Shakespeare Festival
Thanks to popular demand Lucy Peacock's Late Night with Lucy cabaret series is moving from her cozy "living room" at the Annex performance space to a bigger house at the Studio Theatre for its last two dates in August.
The series, which was recently declared sold out, will be held at the Studio Theatre for the following performances:
August 24, 11:30 p.m.
August 31, 11:30 p.m.
These final two shows will feature highlights from the entire series.
Tickets for these performances go on sale to the general public this Friday and can be purchased at the box office, online at www.stratfordshakespearefestival.com or by calling 1.800.567.1600.
"This joyful cabaret series has proven to be a wonderful addition to our 60th season, offering a rare opportunity for audiences to glimpse some of the hidden talents of our company," says Artistic Director Des McAnuff. "Lucy's luminous energy is absolutely contagious, making these evenings unforgettable."
"I am delighted that we will be able to offer this series to a wider audience," says General Director Antoni Cimolino. "Lucy has created an entertaining and jubilant celebration of music and theatre – it's no wonder it's been a hot ticket this summer."
Late Night with Lucy has featured dozens of performers, including: Anna Atkinson, Laura Burton, Ben Carlson, Laura Condlln, Naomi Costain, Ted Dykstra, Josh Epstein, Randy Hughson, Aaron Krohn, Nora McLellan, George Meanwell, Alon Nashman, Tyrone Savage and Geraint Wyn Davies.
