An Intimate Evening with Ruthie Henshall will launch Feb. 8, 2014, in Lincoln before playing dates in Milton Keynes, Bristol, Chipping Norton, Clacton on Sea, Bury St. Edmunds, Wimbourne, Malvern, Didcot, Wakefield, Stafford, Radlett, Shrewsbury, Merseyside, Horsham, Epsom, Cambridge and Dunstable.
The actress and her band will take audiences, press notes state, "on a musical journey through her extraordinary career, from working with Lionel Bart to playing in Chicago on Broadway, from starring in Les Misérables to receiving her Olivier Award…The evening draws from a broad range of genres, from the great American songbook through to contemporary tunes significant to Ruthie, to the present day."
"I am absolutely thrilled to be touring with my one woman show again," Henshall said in a statement. "I love working with my band and taking this piece, which means so much to me, across the country. We get to meet hundreds of new people out on tour and share our show with them. It is also hugely gratifying that this is the second year of my new production company and we are going from strength to strength - running your own business is a wonderful feeling."
