The Olivier Award-winning, cult cabaret band The Tiger Lillies will perform at Wilton’s Music Hall from 23 February to 6 March 2021.
Rediscover the music of Cole Porter with the Grammy nominees as they uncover the dark, despair and delirium that lies beneath the surface of Porter’s more romantic and mysterious works in Love For Sale.
Martyn Jacques and Adrian Stout return with a twisted, grimy cabaret that re-imagines some of Porter’s best loved classics including ‘My Heart Belongs to Daddy’, ‘Love For Sale’ and ‘Miss Otis Regrets’ as well as hits from his most famous musicals.
Martyn Jacques describes the project as ‘dragging Cole Porter down to our level’. But he also acknowledges that his own writing has more in common with Porter’s than might be expected. ‘The classic song as far as this collaboration goes is Miss Otis Regrets. As I’ve been recording the songs the engineer said to me that it is a Tiger Lillies song… it is very much in that dark gothic type world which is part of what we do.’
The world The Tiger Lillies creates on-stage is dark, peculiar and varied, with moments of deep sadness, cruel black humour and immense beauty. The Tiger Lillies’ music is a mixture of pre-war Berlin cabaret, anarchic opera and gypsy music, echoing the voices of Bertolt Brecht and Jacques Brel.
