Miss Hope Springs Christmas Agogo!
Winner Broadway World Awards Best Cabaret Edinburgh Fringe 2019
Miss Hope Springs 1971 Granada TV special Christmas Agogo! is to this day considered an unaired classic.
Once the toast of Las Vegas (now down on her luck and highly medicated) live at the piano ‘recovering showgirl’ Miss Hope Springs rummages under her Christmas tree to unpack a glittering array of all original self-penned festive songs from her acclaimed repertoire. You’ll hear toe show-stopping show tunes, witty comedy numbers and haunting ballads, interspersed with scandalous stories from her ‘Ritz to the pits life’ in LA Paris and erm …Dungeness. Hope sprinkles a fine frosting of vintage Vegas glitz as she takes you on this trip down her, by now, somewhat potholed ‘mammary lane’. You’ll hear numbers such as Santa is a Woman, the heartbreaking Paper Snow, hysterical Christmas Calypso, riotous Bagels and many more.
