Miss Nightingale

Back for another show in the Vaults, a fantastic theatre and fringe location. My visit to see Miss Nightingale was organised by the lovely Joanne of Love Popups London.

When we arrived, we were handed a chocolate ration and led to a 1940s styled waiting area, with rotary telephones, old radios, beautiful photos of the performers and plenty of seating options.

Miss Nightingale is a musical set in 1942, following the lives of several protagonists trying to find love and change the world. A cabaret club, a singer, a songwriter, an aristocrat, a crook, there are several charming and enticing characters involved in weaving this fascinating tale.

Outrageously funny songs break up the deeply touching story into bite-sized chunks. Miss Nightingale walks the line between devastating and hilarious beautifully, pushing all your buttons with just the right intensity.

The story is so well written, the songs so catchy, the performances intense and convincing. I absolutely loved every minute of it.

I’m rating Miss Nightingale six out of six rainbow sloths.
