UK Tour (various dates and times), 70 mins
London-Paris-Roam! is a new show that fuses fab innovative music with an original story. It combines situational comedy and heart-to-hearts with the audience within a narrative arc that uses song as an integral part of the storytelling to create a new type of show: a one-woman musical. The original music is a blend of musical theatre, soulful ballads and catchy rhythms, accompanied by piano.
She's jived in Japan, indulged in Italy, feasted in France… and suddenly woken up to find she's now a woman of a certain age. When you have to sit down to put your tights on, it's obviously time to take stock. So what's the next move, Sarah? “Gay Paree” has been magnifique, but maybe it's time for a change? In this funny and moving account of her globetrotting life so far, Sarah Tullamore is packing her bags, waving Au Revoir and singing brand new songs all about it. Clear away the clutter…
London-Paris-Roam! premiered at La Comédie Nation Theatre, Paris in November 2015. In 2016, after cabaret excerpts at The Toulouse Lautrec Brasserie and The Bedroom Bar in London, Sarah performed a full version at The Rosemary Branch Theatre, London and the renowned Jermyn Street Theatre in London’s West End. The show then ran at the Paris Fringe Festival in May to critical and public acclaim, continuing to the Edinburgh Fringe where it ran for all of August with theSpaceUK, garnering four-star reviews in the process. The show will embark on an international tour in the spring of 2017 which will take it to France, South Africa and England.
London-Paris-Roam! is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
