Lady of Jazz is an uplifting evocation of 1920s New Orleans and the gripping
story of Honey Grey, lead singer in her Daddy’s band. She sings her own
brilliant ragtime, Charleston and blues numbers, but also standards like Careless Love, Frankie & Johnnie, Ain’t Nobody’s Business and more.
But Honey is living a lie and that’s a dangerous thing to do in the 1920s in
the South …
The role of Honey Grey will be played by the incredible Michaela Bennison.
Lady of Jazz premièred at INK 2019, starring the exceptional Liberty Buckland,
accompanied by pianist Tony Pegler.
