Ty Jeffries has played cabaret artist Miss Hope Springs for many years. Performer and portrayed are now inseparable companions, and Ty has no regrets about that.
After many acclaimed shows, Ty is at the Fringe with It’s Miss Hope Springs and Paul Levy chatted to Ty about the development of the show, the character, and life on the road from when he first met Miss Hope at the Marlborough Theatre Brighton to an imagined offer to play a residency at Caesars Palace.
“Join comedy cabaret superstar Miss Hope Springs at the piano, presenting original musical numbers from her vintage repertoire of toe-tapping show tunes, finger-snapping pop and heart-rending ballads, interspersed with scandalous stories from her ‘Ritz-to-the-pits’ showbiz life in LA, Paris and… Dungeness! Still in the sequins she fled the Pink Pelican Casino wearing in 1972, let Hope (once the toast of Vegas, now down on her luck and heavily medicated) take you on a trip down ‘mammary lane’ in this ‘smash hit laugh-out-loud-move-you to-tears show’ (BroadwayWorld.com).”
