Facing the Music: A Life in Musical Theatre - Patricia Routledge & Edward Seckerson
One of the best kept secrets in showbusiness is that Patricia Routledge – known for TV comedy roles like Hyacinth Bucket – trained not only as an actress but also as a singer. She enjoyed huge success in musical theatre on both sides of the Atlantic, winning a Tony for her Broadway performance in Darling of the Day and a Laurence Olivier Award for her West End role in Leonard Bernstein’s Candide. In this fascinating encounter with the writer and broadcaster Edward Seckerson, Dame Patricia recalls this very special part of her career with access to some rare and treasured recordings.
