Dillie Keane formed Fascinating Aida a quarter of a century ago; the show has performed in 5 continents, had 6 West End runs, recorded 8 albums, received 5 award nominations (3 Olivier, 1 Drama Desk, 1 Perrier) and has published 2 books.

 

"...operatic and jazz-trained female singers who outsatirise Rory Bremner and outbeguile Eartha Kitt. It's as though they're the love child of Freddie Mercury and Dawn French. Is that possible? Impossibly good is what it is." Ken Russell in The Times


Imagine SEX AND THE CITY with harmonies...

Imagine Absolutely Fabulous sung by the Andrews Sisters...

Imagine Noel Coward, but ruder...

Tom Lehrer with heart...

Jacques Brel with jokes...

Monty Python set to music...

Edith Piaf with better frocks...

Marlene with cellulite...

Emma Thompson with rhythm...
