PIERFEST: Miss Hope Springs: I’ve Been Around
Enter the wonderful and wickedly funny world of Miss Hope Springs as she take to the stage of Brighton’s newest festival PierFest.
Miss Hope Is the comic creation of Ty Jeffries, a brilliant writer and composer with a personal history of top ranking show business that spans both the UK and Hollywood. Add to that history years of classical music training and the outcome is inevitably going to be brilliant – and it is.
Hope is an ex Vegas showgirl with a chequered career as a cabaret chanteuse that took her from the gambling capital of the USA where she was raised by her mother Rusty and grandmother Augusta Wind. From there it’s a helter skelter of glamour and glitches that see her performing in Berlin Kabaret bars and Pigalle flea pits.
Now Miss Hope Springs is the award winning darling of the cabaret and festival circuit on both sides of the Atlantic and beyond where she performs her self penned ballads and bawdy blockbusters at the piano to a whole new audience. Each show is a revelatory journey through her career, her disastrous marriage to Irving and life in a camper van – and it couldn’t be camper.
Ty Jeffries is not only a great performer but is also a brilliant composer and lyricist. The songs are so good that before long you believe that they are classics, that you have heard them before, maybe sung by Shirley Bassey or Cher…
And that is the genius behind this show, Miss Hope Springs is tragically believable and utterly joyous and that is what the media believe too – ‘The greatest star that never was sings the greatest hits that never were’ Jonathan Ross BBC Radio 2.
