A supremely well-sung and cool contemporary look at one of the most intriguing questions of musical theatre, ?Just what is it that makes a woman in trousers so appealing?' Mezzo-soprano, Jessica Walker, and theatre director, Neil Bartlett, conjure up an entire world, from the swaggering cross-dressers of the Victorian Music Hall, to the ambiguous boy-heroes of Mozart and Strauss. A provocative, flirtatious and deliciously personal guide to the forgotten chapter of female performance. Devised by Neil Bartlett and Jessica WalkerPerformers Jessica Walker, James Holmes.
