Love for Sale
a cabaret play
Oh, show us the way to the next whisky bar. . .
Oh, don't ask why.
An American nobody, just on the wrong side of young, runs off to Paris to escape the Depression. When she finds herself a sweet Frenchman and a gig in a cheap cabaret, she thinks she’s cheated fate —
but the City of Light has a few tricks up its sleeve.
About the Show:
Love for Sale is a cabaret-play, celebrating the music of the 1930s and composers from Cole Porter to Kurt Weill. The show was developed site-specifically for Wilton’s Music Hall, where it played to sold-out houses before moving on to the St James Studio, the Edinburgh Fringe -- and Off-Broadway, where it spent six weeks on TimeOut's list of 'Top 10 Things to Do in New York'.
The Press on Love for Sale
'A heartfelt and stylish show which is as intelligent as it is decadent.'
'Smoky, spiky and intelligently textured.'
'Kelly Burke seems to have come to life from a Henry Miller novel and walked straight onto the set of Casablanca. In this cheap bar with a “cheap pianist” we have an intimate conversation about the human heart — and Burke’s talent is spectacular.'
