Broadway Baby

by Gill Manly


A young woman’s dreams of Broadway stardom, her rise to the top, and her fall from grace are told through a dramatic medley of musical theatre hits. Follow a small-town girl called Esther as she shoots for the stars, and discovers the perils of losing your innocence in the city that never sleeps.

Drowning the sorrows of three failed marriages, Esther succumbs to addiction and despair before pulling herself back to the top in an emotional comeback. Gill Manly with Simon Wallace perform songs from A Chorus LineGypsyFolliesInto the WoodsSweeney ToddChicagoFunny GirlHello DollySunset Boulevard, and many more.

Manly is famed for her intense and dramatic performance, and has curated this collection of Broadway classics to create a moving, bittersweet story of dreams fulfilled and hopes betrayed.

“Manly is a singer who exquisitely balances clarity of line and emotional nuance, all wrapped up in her characteristically lustrous timbre” – Jazzwise
