Miss Hope Springs…live at the piano recovering showgirl Miss Hope Springs sings her all original songs and tells stories from her Ritz to the pits life!!

Playing the piano and singing her award winning repertoire of catchy all-original self penned songs, London cabaret sensation, lounge-tastic ex-Vegas nightclub chanteuse Miss Hope Springs, brings you her ‘laugh-out-loud-move-you-to-tears’ one woman show. Still wearing the sequins she left the Pink Pelican Casino with in 1972, Hope performs her unique blend of finger snapping pop, romantic rhumbas and sassy bossa novas interspersed with hysterical tales from her ‘Ritz to the pits’ life. Miss Hope Springs has been hailed as ‘One of the most important cabaret creations of the decade’ Musical Theatre Review, and is the towering blonde alter ego of composer, lyricist, pianist and comic actor Ty Jeffries.’Tragic-comic genius’ Julian Clary.

Ty is the son of the late British screen legend Lionel Jeffries and his formative years, living and going to school in Hollywood, lend real authenticity to his multilayered portrayal of never say die show business trouper Hope. Ty danced with Fred Astaire down Sunset Strip one night, was sung to by Maurice Chevalier by the pool of the Chateau Marmont Hotel and fell asleep in his soup during dinner with Frank Sinatra at the Brown Derby (well, he was only 6 at the time). Ty is a classically trained pianist (Purcell School) and after 2 hugely successful years at The Crazy Coqs in Piccadilly, a recent 6 month residency at The Hippodrome Casino Ty recently returned from a hugely successful 11 date tour of The States (including an appearance at the Lincoln Centre) where his show was hailed ‘A triumph’ by Cabaret Scenes USA. Ty lives in London and has recently been elected a member of the The Royal Society of Musicians.
