After a two-decade absence, internationally acclaimed West End and New York legend Lorna Dallas returns to the world of cabaret with her new show, "Home Again," devised by her long time collaborators, director Barry Kleinbort and, at the piano, the inimitable Jason Carr. In "Home Again," Ms. Dallas dishes up beloved classics by Kern and Gershwin, alongside little known gems by Kander and Ebb and Amanda McBroom, while tossing in a few recent worthies from Broadway and beyond just for good measure.

Lorna, who came to prominence in this country when she co-starred opposite Dame Cleo Laine in the landmark revival of "Show Boat," has since appeared in many West End productions as well as recordings, concerts, films and her own BBC variety show. Her previous cabaret performances on both sides of the "pond" were met with unqualified praise. Michael Billington in the Guardian wrote, "This is a rare soprano who has an instinct for truth that puts many of her lauded show biz rivals to shame." Mark Shenton in the Stage remarked: "Some cabaret artists - like vintage wines - mature and deepen with age. One such is Lorna Dallas… she is always sublime." Harry Haun in PLAYBILL wrote, "Her singing touches the soul and leaves a memory that lasts forever." In short, Lorna Dallas' "Home Again" promises to be that rare musical return you won't want to miss.
