Singer and West End musical theatre star Claudia Morris is set to return to the stage early next year in Secret Love, the heart-warming musical celebrating the life and career of the incomparable Doris Day.
The show returns to the UK in February for a two month tour consisting on 26 dates, following the success of a previous run in 2013.
A stellar performer in her own right, Claudia Morris’ career has seen her appear in shows like Camelot at The Liverpool Playhouse and Guys ‘n Dolls at the Cheltenham Everyman Theatre.
She was also in the original cast of Buddy in London’s West End.
After a break to raise her family she released two albums which opened up the opportunity for the singer to create and embark on her very own passion project – a UK tour of Secret Love.
Since then Claudia has been picking up plaudits from critics as well as completing a successful BBC radio tour.
Secret Love is very much a homage to a special singer and actress, Doris Day.
Yhe Hollywood legend has had an extraordinary life encompassing the big band era, Hollywood stardom, financial disaster, domestic tragedy, a TV comeback and tireless campaigning for animal rights.
In an intimate evening of reminiscence, Claudia explores why she’s been so influenced by Doris Day.
Expect plenty of laughs, a few tears and some surprises in this celebration of Day’s extraordinary life.
Accompanied by a live band and actors, the show is unique and unmissable and includes evergreen hits like Que Sera Sera, Sentimental Journey, It’s Magic and Perhaps Perhaps, as well as some rare, poignant songs that show the many sides of the intriguing icon.
