Patricia Routledge & Edward Seckerson

Presented in association with Clive Conway Productions, watch Patricia Routledge and Edward Seckerson live at The Menuhin Hall in Cobham, Surrey. 

One of the best kept secrets in show business is that Patricia Routledge, known for TV comedy roles like Hyacinth Bucket, trained not only as an actress but also as a singer. She enjoyed huge success in musical theatre on both sides of the Atlantic, winning a Tony for her Broadway performance in Darling of the Day and a Laurence Olivier Award for her West End role in Leonard Bernstein’s Candide. 

Edward Seckerson is a prolific broadcaster, writer, and journalist as well as a self-confessed ‘musical theatre obsessive’, Edward has interviewed everyone from Bernstein to Liza Minnelli, Paul McCartney to Pavarotti, Julie Andrews to Andrew Lloyd Webber. He wrote and presented the long-running BBC Radio 3 series Stage & Screen. He also regularly produces podcast interviews with notable theatrical artists and makes regular appearances on the BBC Radio 2 Arts Show, BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4, where he presented the 2007 series of the music quiz Counterpoint. He has published books on Gustav Mahler and the conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, is a regular critic for Gramophone Magazine and Opern Welt, and a founder member of The Arts Desk.

In this fascinating encounter with Edward Seckerson, Dame Patricia recalls her career with access to some rare and treasured recordings.
