"The UK's answer to Nora Jones and Diana Krall" Time Out
Accompanied by the George Double Trio (Shirley Bassey, Jack Jones, Ruthie Henshall, Joanna Eden approaches the songs of Stephen Sondheim from her own, jazz-influenced and heartfelt perspective.
Joanna is delighted to be joined by special guest vocalist LEIGH MCDONALD
(National Theatre, Honk, Mamma Mia).
Joanna launched 'Sondheim & Me' at the EFG London Jazz Festival 2018 to rave reviews. This show is a must for those with a passion for jazz and musical theatre alike.
Joanna Eden honours the 'Godfather of Modern Musical Theatre’, Mr Stephen Sondheim.
In a journey from West Side Story' to 'Into the Woods', Joanna explores the jazzy side of Sondheim without losing the theatrical truth.
Enjoy Joanna’s fresh take on Sondheim classics like ‘Send in the Clowns’, ‘Being Alive’, ‘Giants in the Sky’ and ‘The Miller’s Son’ whilst Leigh McDonald gives her high octane rendition of ‘Not Getting Married’ from Company.
With beautiful duets on ‘Pretty Women’ and ‘The Ladies Who Lunch’ and an a cappella performance of ‘Somewhere’ Eden gives Sondheim’s works a delightful new approach.
