By Sarah-Louise Young
Directed by & with contributions from Russell Lucas
Musical Direction by Michael Roulston
With Sarah-Louise Young and Michael Roulston
A charming yet cheeky West End hit about the life and work of showbiz legend Julie Andrews.
This cabaret weaves songs from musicals including Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, and My Fair Lady as Sarah-Louise Young shares stories and anecdotes about Andrews’s life: from her beginnings as a child star to the recent challenges of losing her famous singing voice. What emerges is a delightfully funny and candid love letter from a super fan to a true show business survivor.

“The impressive range of notes seem to emanate flawlessly from her throat” - Lavender After Dark
"A delightful evening” - TheaterScene
"In the program, 59E59 Theaters artistic director Val Day describes this show as “infectiously joyous.” I couldn’t think of a better phrase – except perhaps supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, of course. Julie Madly Deeply is many things: a cabaret, a history, and a celebration. Sarah Louise Young employs some of Julie Andrews’ most famous songs to recount the iconic performer’s life and career, accompanied by a wonderful Michael Roulston on piano throughout. The story is helped along with audience interaction and the appearance (that is, spot-on impressions by Ms. Young) of some celebrity players in the narrative...Young brings them to vivid and sparkling life through her storytelling and song." - Play To See
