Janie Dee In Cabaret Double Booking

23 January 2014 - 01:31 AM

Currently Janie Dee is appearing in Putting It Together at the St. James Theatre - great show, super performer. Show runs until Saturday 1 February. Go!

Next week Janie Dee is appearing in cabaret at the Pheasantry - 28 Jan to 1 Feb, shows at 8.30.
PROBLEM - Performances of PIT do not finish until 9.30!

In PIT, they make a joke of Janie arriving late for the performance - is this just practice for the cabaret? I booked the Pheasantry when Janie's show was first advertised as her show only. Without notifying bookers, they then changed the programme on their website to an 8.30 set by her accompanist Jason Carr followed by Janie's set at 9.30. This will not be possible. Logistically she cannot appear before 10.00pm at the earliest. Buy another pizza....

This could be an entertaining but LONG evening. I have had to cancel my booking as I shall not be able to get home afterwards. Others are doing the same. This is a pity for Janie but the Pheasantry have not helped. It is a disgrace that they have not notified those who had already booked that the timing has been changed. Some may have to leave half way through Janie's set. Shame on the Pheasantry!
