LITTLE VOICE and ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS star Jane Horrocks has returned to the Young Vic stage in London with her new show IF YOU KISS ME, KISS ME. Described as ‘part gig, part dance piece’ the one hour hybrid show was conceived by Jane and choreographer Aletta Collins as a tribute to the post punk new wave music that Jane grew up with in Lancashire during the 70’s and early 80’s. Jane performs her own ‘gritty and soulful’ versions with a ‘bit more contemporary edge to them’ of songs from The Smiths, Joy Division, The Human League, The Buzzcocks, Soft Cell and others, accompanied by a live band and a company of dancers.
In his four-star review, The Telegraph’s music critic Mark Monahan said it was “one of the crispest and kookiest hours of entertainment you’re likely to encounter all year.”
