Ivy Paige - Scandalous! House of Whorecraft... at Leicester Square Theatre, London
Inspired by the 18th century costumes and lifestyle, Ivy Paige's latest production, Scandalous! House of 'Whorecraft' appears in the West End, London, since October (check the different dates). Ivy's fascination with stories of the time and brothel Madams, their spirit, entrepreneurial character and their drive for success, despite their prophesied pitiful destiny, has been the inspiration for this dramatisation.
Set in London in the mid 18th century, the story transports you into a voyage with Ivy Paige who is to become London's most notorious brothel Madam. Accompanied by her courtesans, Ivy will enthrall you right from the beginning...!
A very talented performer, with a business spirit of her own, Ivy Paige promises to take you on a journey filled with intrigue, thrill and fabulous acting; undoubtedly, I expect the best of theatre play, and performance. She has collaborated with two grand names in music and theatre productions, Harper Ray (artistic director for the West End Cabaret Club 'Too Too Much' - formerly the Raymond Revue Bar, and presently producer/director at the Shakespeare Globe theatre), and Peter Saunders (formerly a member of Dexys Midnight Runners) who brings his signature tunes (a mixture of old and new songs), making a most exciting combination, not just in terms of music and cabaret but in ideas and creativity.
Scandalous! is a play not to miss this season, as it vows to bring burlesque, cabaret, music and a fabulous story line with talented actors, all in one night...!
