SOOZ KEMPNER

 

EDINBURGH 2015

 

Alongside her comedy show, Character Activist, Sooz will be providing a free cabaret of songs by the greatest musical theatre composer: Stephen Sondheim. Well-known hits join lesser-known songs from a career that spans almost 70 years (Sondheim's, not Sooz's). Sooz trained in musical theatre at the Royal Academy of Music and has performed in musicals including The Wizard of Oz, City of Angels and Sondheim's Assassins (twice). Warning: May also contain witty/tragic patter. And special guests.

 

 

"sung brilliantly and with excellent comic timing" - The Public Reviews

 

"...the real surprise of the evening is Suzanna Kempner...delivering the melancholy 'Alone And Yet Alive' with utter conviction." - The Stage

 

"The voice of an angel but the soul of something much darker...she will have you laughing like a drain." - Red In The Face

 

"Kempner’s incredibly infectious smile holds the attention for an hour without any lull, building up to a stunning finale where she really shows off her lungs. This is a woman who belongs on a stage." - Chortle
