In the heady atmosphere of 1930s Paris, Suzy Solidor thrilled audiences with her performances of erotic lesbian songs. Painted or photographed by everybody from Man Ray to Bacon, she sang surrounded by her 225 portraits. This intimate show will transport you back to a night in her club at the height of her career. During an increasingly whisky-fuelled evening, as Suzy regales the audience with her most famous songs, past and present begin to collide: she encounters past lovers, artists, her absent father and, finally, herself.
After a sell-out world premiere at the Royal Exchange, and straight from a London run, ‘All I Want is One Night’ comes to Hope Mill Theatre for 9 performances only.
‘A pure, bright mezzo-soprano of such melting beauty I think I could listen to it forever’ – New York Times 2013
