Maria Friedman to perform solo concert at Southbank Centre
After a two-week residency at Crazy Coqs earlier this year, it has been announced that Maria Friedman will perform at the Queen Elizabeth Hall.
The three-time Olivier Award-winning actress will perform her latest solo show titled Maria Friedman: From the Heart at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on 10th November.
The solo concert celebrates her extensive theatre career and her musical inspirations including Joni Mitchell, George Gershwin and Cole Porter, as well as versions of musical theatre songs and new material.
Friedman won her first Olivier Award in 1995 for her one-woman cabaret Maria Friedman by Special Arrangement, later winning the best actress in a musical category for her performances in Passion and Ragtime.
Friedman has also originated the role of Marian Halcombe in The Woman in White, reprising her performance in the Broadway transfer. Further theatre credits include Merrily We Roll Along, Blues in the Night, Chicago and The Witches of Eastwick. She can currently be seen playing Golde in the West End revival of Fiddler on the Roof at the Playhouse Theatre.
On screen, Maria has starred as the Narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and the Mother Abbess in ITV’s Sound of Music Live.
Maria Friedman is at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on 10th November.
