In the 1920s and ’30s, Jessie Matthews high kicked her way out of the back streets of Soho onto the cinema screens of the world. But behind the glamour, her ghosts never ceased to haunt her. What was the secret of her appeal – and of her private life?

 

OVER MY SHOULDER features all her best-loved hits: Dancing on the Ceiling, Let’s Do It, It’s Love Again and, of course, the title song.

 

Playing Jessie is the original star of The Boy Friend and the first ever USA tour of My Fair Lady – the evergreen Anne Rogers. She and members of the original sell-out Jermyn Street Theatre cast return in one of the most enjoyable shows of the year!

 

“For the evocation of a bygone era, this show is the tops” What’s On
