What Would Julie Do? LIVE
The Pheasantry Chelsea
Sophie was the Headline act for ‘What Would Julie Do?’ at the Pheasantry for an evening of musical theatre therapy.
"Linder-Lee is quite a find. Her powerfully flexible and wonderfully accurate voice, as well as her attractive stage presence virtually monopolised the stage."
The night was created by Blogger, Rosie Williamson. She shares ideas about how to solve problems (like Maria), find the fun (until even the dullest job is a game), and tell you about a few of her favourite things.
The Biograph Girl
Sophie appears as Mary Pickford "The Biograph Girl" in the musical of the same title at the Finborough Theatre.
Commissioned by the Finborough Theatre as part of their acclaimed ‘Celebrating British Music Theatre’ series, the first professional UK production since its 1980 premiere, The Biograph Girl by Warner Brown and David Heneker.
Weaving together the heartbreaks and triumphs of the flawed genius director D. W. Griffith and the first movie stars Lilian Gish and Mary Pickford, The Biograph Girl is a love letter to the stardust and scandals of the silent movie era.
"Terrific Sophie Linder-Lee...invests her with a soaring soprano, killer tap moves, a delightful sense of fun but also strongly suggests a woman not to be messed with."
"Sophie Linder-Lee’s Mary Pickford has vim"
THE OBSERVER ★★★★
"It is very easy to fall in love with the burst of energy that Sophie Linder-Lee brings"
UPPER CIRCLE ★★★★
If we could hear Mary sing… she would have Linder-Lee’s ass-kicking exuberance!
