In the Sunday afternoon series "Cabaret in the House," running at Highate's Lauderdale House Oct. 10- Dec. 5, the fall season includes appearances by Hadley Fraser (Broadway's Pirate Queen, most recently in the West End in The Fantasticks), Tiffany Graves (currently starring in Sweet Charity at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket as Charity's sidekick Helene) and Alex Gaumond (currently starring in Legally Blonde at the Savoy Theatre as Emmette). Each afternoon features two sets — one by an up-and-coming talent, the other by an established West End performer. The shows are hosted by Valerie Cutko (Broadway's Grand Hotel) and accompanied by Stephen Hose. The full season comprises: Jon-Paul Hevey, supported by Emma Lumdsen (Oct. 10); Rosalie Craig, supported by Damian Robinson (Oct. 17); Hadley Fraser, supported by Ashleigh Jones (Oct. 24); Margaret Preece, supported by Alex Wadham (Nov. 7); Tiffany Graves, supported by Reed Sinclair (Nov. 14); Alex Gaumond, supported by Hayley Emma Otway (Nov. 21); and a afternoon billed as Christmas Cabaret Ding Dong on Dec. 5, a seasonal celebration featuring stars from the series.
In a new series entitled "Christmas With...," to be presented at the Waterloo East Theatre, successive Sundays will feature Annalene Beechey and Glyn Kerslake on Dec. 5, Rebecca Caine (the original Cosette in Les Miserables), Nathan Martin and guests on Dec. 12, and Hadley Fraser and friends on Dec. 19.
