Sex, scandal and showbiz in 1940s London
Northern lass Maggie Brown has moved to London in search of fame. She auditions at every cabaret bar, with songwriter George, but nobody wants their act. Things aren't much better with her boyfriend Tom.
Everything changes when Maggie and George are picked up by wealthy nightclub owner, Sir Frank. Soon 'Miss Nightingale' explodes onto the stage - shocking society with her outrageous outfits and saucy songs. But off stage, lurk secrets more devastating than the Blitz.
Featuring 20 original numbers, a troupe of talented actor musicians and starring burlesque bombshell Amber Topaz, Miss Nightingale - the burlesque musical brings the vintage glamour of war-torn London thrillingly to life.
