Actress Siân Phillips on the art of cabaret

Veteran stage actress Siân Phillips CBE discusses her cabaret show, early career and current views on marriage!  Siân began performing cabaret after a brilliant run in Pam Gems’ play Marlene where she recreated Marlene Dietrich last cabaret performance. She’s toured around the world, and was greeted in New York with the headline, “No more Marlene, just Siân Phillips.” She’s also performed live with the gorgeous Rufus Wainwright, and will be on stage with him again at the Barbican in March.

Sian first won acclaim for her BAFTA Award-winning role in I, Claudius before staring in Goodbye Mr Chips and Beckett (opposite ex-husband Peter O’Toole), Tinker Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and Dune.   Her recent stage successes include Lovesong, Juliet and her Romeo, Dangerous Liaisons on Broadway and the West End and the touring production of Calendar Girls.
