With a voice described by Sir Cameron Mackintosh as “absolutely magnificent”, critically acclaimed West End leading lady Philippa Healey continues to win fans across the world. Our “Lassie From Lancashire” takes you on a show-stopping musical journey, with her trademark combination of outstanding musicianship and comedic charm.
