Rachel to perform three shows as part of Live At Zedel season

It has been announced that Rachel is going to be performing a set of 3 intimate solo shows in London as part of Brasserie Zedel's 'Live at Zedel' season. The shows will be on Monday 20th & Tuesday 21st March at 7pm & a special late show on Saturday 25th March at 11pm. This will be the first time Rachel has done such intimate solo shows of this nature. The venue itself, formally The Crazy Coq's is a charming 80 seater venue, making you feel like you're spending a casual, but somewhat fancy evening in with one of the Westend & Broadway's leading ladies. The show is going to be directed by Rachel's husband & acclaimed director Guy Retallack & is brought to us by Parallel Productions.

UPDATE* - In less than a week the shows are already SOLD OUT. So if you want to catch Rachel & missed booking, keep an eye on the the website & the @LiveAtZedel & Parallel Productions Twitter accounts & Follow us @RTFB1981 for updates on any returns.

"After two sell-out one-woman shows, Rachel Tucker is back with her first intimate solo show. Following a triumphant run as Elphaba in Wicked the Musical on Broadway, for which she was the recipient of the Best Female Replacement Award at the 2016 Broadway.com Audience Awards, Rachel is currently reprising her role as Elphaba in London's West End, as part of Wicked's special 10th Anniversary cast, having also previously played the role to great acclaim in London for 3 years, where she holds the title of longest consecutive running Elphaba and won the 2011 WhatsOnStage award for Best Takeover in a Role.Rachel made her Broadway debut in late 2014 in Sting's musical The Last Ship, creating the role of Meg Dawson, to rave reviews.In 2015, Rachel performed her one-woman show Back From Broadway, which won the 2015 West End Wilma Award for Best Cabaret. Rachel's debut solo album The Reason was launched in her first sell-out concert at the St. James Theatre in August 2013."                                            - Brasserie Zedel

It is yet to be announced if Rachel will have any guests or who they are likely to be, but these 'Live at Zedel' gigs usually involve a different guest/friend of the performer showing up for a sing song each night, so i'm going to assume we can look forward to something exciting. 

After catching all of Rachel's previous solo shows in London in the last few years & even her Belfast gig. It's safe to assume that Rachel is going to come prepared to knock our socks off once again, with a fabulous & thoughtful line up or songs, blended with interesting anecdotes about why these songs made the cut & her ever interesting & inspiring stories that go along with each.

Live At Zedel is located underneath Brasserie Zedel in the heart of central London just off Piccadilly circus. 20 Sherwood Street, London, W1F 7ED.
