Just Jim Dale - 2015 - West End

Following his huge Off-Broadway success in New York, Tony Award winner, two-time Grammy Award winner and two-time Academy Award nominee Jim Dale will bring his critically acclaimed show, Just Jim Dale, to London's West End in May this year.

Previewing from Tuesday 26th May (Press Night 28th May) at the Vaudeville Theatre, where Jim made his West End musical debut in 1965 in The Wayward Way, this return marks the 50th Anniversary of his first performance at the theatre.

Jim Dale is one of the world's great stage entertainers: singer, dancer, comedian, Shakespearean actor, raconteur. In Just Jim Dale, Jim takes audiences on a journey through an unequalled career in the theatre with a myriad of irresistible showbiz tales, songs and performances - a career extending from performing as the youngest professional comedian on the British Music Hall stage, to joining the National Theatre at the request of Sir Laurence Olivier, starring in 11 Carry On films, his Broadway triumphs in Scapino, Barnum and Me and My Girl, and then his uproarious experiences narrating all seven Harry Potter audiobooks for the US market. Candid, intimate and hilarious, Just Jim Dale is an unforgettable evening with consummate stage personality, encompassing stories from the vast breadth of Jim's theatrical work, film roles and beloved songs, including The Colours of My Life, The Lambeth Walk and Georgy Girl.

In Just Jim Dale, the British Music Hall is featured as both a family business (Jim Dale's grandmother ran a theatrical boarding house adjoining a local music hall) and as a major influence on Dale's career. Music hall entertainment evolved out of musical performances given at local taverns. These 'taproom concerts' were initially a background diversion, secondary to the eating, drinking, and debauchery common to early 19th century pubs. As the concerts gained popularity, pub owners took note, and by the mid-1830s, taverns often had entire 'song and supper rooms' devoted to the entertainment. In 1843, the Theatre Regulations Act differentiated music halls from the 'theatre proper' (theatres that housed ballet and opera performances). While smoking and drinking were banned in the theatre proper, they were allowed to continue in music hall entertainment, thus cementing the music hall's popularity as a hangout for working class audiences.
