About Bill – Theatre At The Tabard

28 June - 6 July 2024

About Bill is a show entirely about Bill, although we never meet him. Instead, we hear from all of the women in his life. Some loved him, others fled from him. All were affected by Bill Fitzgerald, the legendary swashbuckling jazz trumpeter.

Kim Ismay returns to the Tabard for five performances of her hit one woman musical About Bill. Written by Matthew Strachan and Bernie Gaughan, About Bill is the follow up to their first musical Next Door’s Baby which was revived at the Tabard in May 2023. Directed by Keith Strachan, this is another chance to experience the brilliance of this show, following its debut at the Tabard last August.

From the journalist who can’t help but be affected by his charm, to the addict lover who blames him for everything, all the women in Bill’s life show us a different aspect of this talented, complicated man as the score takes us on a musical tour of the song styles of Bill’s long life.

And all the while Aunty Dot looks on. She raised him when his mother couldn’t and loved him with the same ferocity as she despairs about his behaviour. Sternly moral, outspoken, and hilarious, she has much to say About Bill.

Starring Kim Ismay who is well known to London Theatreland and has starred in countless West End and national tour productions including Wicked, Mamma Mia, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Saturday Night Fever, Acorn Antiques, Singing In The Rain, Lautrec, The Rocky Horror Show as well as appearing in numerous TV dramas.

“The show’s a triumph – with Kim Ismay, a brilliant actor and singer using all the skills at her command – and the kind you can’t leave without grinning and humming at least one of the unknown but cleverly familiar tunes from six decades.”London Pub Theatres ★★★★★ – Nominated for a Standing Ovation Award
