Miss Hope Springs: Christmas Agogo!
Revisiting her lost 1972 Granada TV special Christmas Agogo! (to this day considered an unaired classic) join down on her luck highly medicated comedy-cabaret-chanteuse Miss Hope Springs as she rummages under her tree to unwrap a glittering array of original seasonal songs from her back-catalogue, all sprinkled with a fine frosting of vintage-Vegas glitz. Expect fabulously festive numbers performed live at the piano with cheeky cha-cha-cha’s swinging jazz, finger snapping pop and instant sing-a-longs including 'Christmas Calypso', 'Santa is a Woman', 'Bagels' and of course her un-saintly theme song 'The Devil Made Me Do It'. If you get enough eggnog down her she might even spill the beans on her ‘Ritz to the pits’ life in LA, Paris and Dungeness, including the torrid Christmas Eve she spent with that Englebert Humperdinck impersonator in the Mohave Desert and working with Joan Crawford on her last movie. Join Hope in this hysterical trip down her, by now somewhat potholed, memory lane.
