Torch, the third show developed by Geri Childs for the Fourth Stage, is a tribute to Torch music from its inception to the present day.
The audience will be taken on a journey through the decades as torch crosses into other musical genres, from blues to jazz, country to pop: starting with Helen Morgan through to Lena Horne and Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee to Patsy Cline, right up to the soulful music of Amy Winehouse.
Geri’s singing is absolutely beautiful. It has the feeling of a voice and a soul so free – with a freedom that only many years of training, of discipline and mastery has given her.
