Dubbed "The First Lady of Musical Theatre," Ms. Paige offers an evening of her career-defining showstoppers and standards that earned her a place among Broadway's most treasured performers.

Her extensive credits also include The King and I, Sweeney Todd, and most recently, the critically acclaimed Broadway and Los Angeles productions of Follies. Additionally, Paige has recorded 26 albums, received an OBE for her services to Musical Theatre, and can be heard on the weekly BBC Radio 2 program Elaine Paige On Sunday, on which she interviews musical luminaries.
