Famed for its sophisticated nightlife, the iconic venue on the Champs Elysées has been home to cabaret's elite including Marlene Dietrich, Edith Piaf, Shirley MacLaine, Liza Minnelli and Noel Coward to name just a few.For many years, headlining at the Lido in the glamourous revue Bonheur, Caroline introduced worldwide audiences to the longings, struggles and heartaches of Lola Lola with Nin at once being its mistress and muse. Caroline and her trio (piano, doublebass, and drums) led by Musical Director Sean Hargreaves, will transport you to the heart of Paris with an exciting repertoire that celebrates the cosmopolitan and multicultural nature of the city.
Caroline Nin says: "Those fabulous years spent at the Lido, performing night after night have been a very important part of my life as a chanteuse and a performer. I had to write this show to express the passion that the world's most famous Cabaret venue has brought to me, it is an honour and pleasure to perform and tell stories of the underworld of the Paris Lido at London's thriving Crazy Coqs."
