Due to unforeseen circumstances, the tour of this show has been cancelled. We send Eliza our best wishes and the hope that we will be able to rearrange with her to have the show at some other point in the future.

Following a five-star run at 2018’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival and a sell-out 2019 Australian tour, Lambert Jackson is thrilled to present Eliza Jackson in The Voice Behind the Stars. 

This one-woman show tells the story of the most prolific ghost singer of all time, Marni Nixon: ‘the best film diva you (almost) never saw’. 

Dubbing for over fifty Hollywood films, she was the singing voice for stars such as Audrey Hepburn, Deborah Kerr, Natalie Wood and Marilyn Monroe. Featuring much-loved tunes from West Side Story, My Fair Lady, The King and I and many more....

Written, performed and sung by Eliza Jackson
Directed by Ian Good.
