Miss Nightingale… Is it about Florence then? No, it’s not, although leading lady Maggie (Lauren Chinery) is a nurse. But she’s also a cabaret singer who, with musician and partner in crime, George (Matthew Floyd Jones), scores a gig at socialite Sir Frank Worthington-Blythe’s (Oliver Mawdsley) cabaret club.

Worthington-Blythe – that’s a rather upper-class name. Well Sir Frank is a rather upper-class guy. War hero and wealthy socialite, but young enough to shake up the entertainment scene, not afraid to take risks and try something new. This may be the Blitz, but London still needs a bit of glitz and glamour!

I’m intrigued! So, is this a cabaret show then? In a way, yes. It’s cabaret meets musical theatre, with inspirations drawn from Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht by writer and composer Matthew Bugg. There is live music that the characters all play instruments in and a whole host of original songs full of laughter, sadness, a bit outrageous and a bit emotional.

If it’s a musical, why is it at the Hippodrome Casino? A good question. Miss Nightingale was first in London back in 2011 at the King’s Head Theatre. It came back for an eight-week run to The Vaults in 2017. It’s the kind of show that suits a slightly alternative space – intimate and jazzy, without the need for big stages or big sets. So, the casino’s performance area is perfect really!

Think of it a bit like Mrs Henderson Presents, with some Cabaret thrown in for good measure. Playing for just over six weeks, it’s definitely worth a watch.

Press Reviews

Matthew Bugg’s music and lyrics brilliantly evoke 1940s Britain… beautifully moving… a well-told and captivating love story WhatsOnStage

It’s theatrical roots spread from Kander and Ebb’s ‘Cabaret’ with a dash of ‘Design For Living’, and touches of Rattigan angst… The book is good, the story absorbing…the songs are terrific. The Times

Witty, entertaining, wonderfully stylish… miss ‘Miss Nightingale’ and miss out! Gaydarnation

This is a brave, original show: and it rewards in a subtle way. Musical Theatre Review

This is more than just a spectacle; it’s a moving, funny and grounded tale of taboos and prejudice in Britain during the Second World War London Theatre

Disappointing slow storyline

The theatre itself is small and cozy and has great potential for audience interaction. The show was dull, not much of a story and the acting and props like an amateur production. Sadly the only female singer had a voice that was very Annoying and whinny. Left at half time.
