The West End Whingers like to do be seen to do their bit for charity (even if it is only to support children) so they are thrilled to learn that they can combine philanthropy with the chance to see some of their favourite musical theatre stars in the forthcoming Follies in Concert which takes place at the London Palladium on Sunday 4th February 2007.
It being a charity thing and not all that important, all names are “subject to availability” of course (a previous engagement has already come up for Laura Michelle Kelly apparently) but if Elaine Stritch, Maria Friedman, Liliane Montevicchi, Liz Robertson, and Imelda Staunton turn up, it’s likely to be a night worth forking out for.
The only fly in the ointment is that the whingers will be faced with avoiding their stalker, Liliane Montevecchi, who ran up to them after her gig at London’s Pizza on the Park a couple of years ago and begged to have her photograph taken with them (left to right: Phil, Liliane, Andrew and would-be whinger Mark). We hope she has learned a little decorum since then.
Ticket prices range from £25 to £150 plus the usual outrageous booking fees (not waiving them for charity, then, See Tickets?).
