We have a Jessie Buckley Cabaret.
The Bridge House , Penge, very near one of the Penge stations. 3PM 22 Sept.
http://www.bridgehousese20.co.uk/#!blank/ccgn events
https://twitter.com/BdgHseTheatre
.............

Jessie's now finished in Miranda and Gabriel at the Globe.
...................
Grateful if anyone who spots anything she's in could post. Jessie's not on twitter or active on facebook, as far as I can see, and her agents don't release much news.She's also potentially going to be seen doing almost anything from musicals to drama, established or new, of all types ,and cabarets anywhere.I only found the cabaret because Rachel twittered it.
...........
She's also able to look and sound very different - which should hopefully open many roles for her.
She currently looks like Miranda, http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/arts/s...cle3754145.ece but there's also Arabella http://www.shakespearesglobe.com/edu...jessie-buckley
There was also Stella in Join My Band
https://www.facebook.com/pages/JOIN-...type=3&theater
or Lee Miller
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...4598592&type=3
Or In Bitter Little Pill
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoUvO4hBUpo

or there's Crosswinds, which her agent's site says really is her

Jessie's Bridge House Cabaret was stunning. Six stars if that existed. She was back with her top accompanyist Joe Thompson. She started with Cabaret sung to new lyrics for the occasion and mimicking Rachel Tucker , who runs the programme there. We had some Jessie classics, and some new numbers with massive power and emotion.. She's got some great new additions and interpretations, and jazzed many songs up brilliantly. We also had a moving IDA duet of Where is Love from Jessie and Rachel.
https://twitter.com/BdgHseTheatre Sept 22 comments give an idea and Rachel sums it up https://twitter.com/racheltucker1 22/9. Rachel had her camera out but I don't think she recorded whole songs.

.................

That was a priviledge to be at. However, Jessie isn't returning to a singing role just yet.........There's news of whats next.

She's continuing her Shakespearian experience and marrying/playing alongside Jude Law - in Henry V at the Noel Coward Theatre St Martins Lane. Jessie is playing Katherine of France, his future wife.

This follows Sheridan Smith in Midsummer Nights Dream, and runs from November 23 to February 15, 2014


It means we get to see Jessie play Act 3 ......en franglais....

Jessie Buckley's's started in Henry V. Reviews and photos next time.

She's also done a couple of interviews pre show start

This one is about her career, and what she wants to do. There's also the story of how she started singing Jazz.
‘I like feeling out of my depth’: how Jessie Buckley went from Kerry to the West End" http://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-s...-end-1.1591322

This one is more about the play and working with Jude Law."Jessie and Jude"
http://www.theirishworld.com/?p=5004

The cast CV for Henry V http://michaelgrandagecompany.com/wh...#henry-v_page2 (under her name) is interesting as it tells us Jessie has just worked on The Boy With the Cuckoo Clock Heart, post Tempest - this is a French animated film which she talks about in one interview. It also has her in Endeavour on ITV. Not sure if this was one I missed, or she is in the coming new series. That would have her back working with Roger Allam, her Prospero.

Has a picture of her as Katherine in Henry V

Jessie Buckley continues in Henry V till Feb 15.

She did an end of year piece for whatsonstage talking about the role and her career
http://www.whatsonstage.com/london-t...tho_33063.html

She's got a lot more great reviews - with some pictures and lots of good adjectives
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/c...re-review.html delicious - with show pictures
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...e-loyalty.html - sweet. Also with first night pictures of Jessie with Jude.
http://www.thestage.co.uk/reviews/re.../39230/henry-v delightful

http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/arts/s...cle3939060.ece


She's also been singing - once - before Henry V started. She sang Cabaret at Joe Thompson's birthday party, and reportedly made a big impression. Not surprisingly given how she sang it at her Bridgehouse cabaret. The Mail has the story, and a picture -2/3 of the way down the page.

Henry V has finished.
There's a youtube with some Jessie as Katherine.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMBZnE-SP2E
.....................
Jessie Buckley seems to next be in in Venice Preserved, by Thomas Otway. She's back in the renaissance.
http://www.venicepreservd.co.uk/
This is a 1680s play - reenacted in a Venice setting ,at Paynes and Borthwick Wharf, Greenwich. There's a boat ride option , Italian food and Jessie.........
http://www.whatsonstage.com/london-t...-ve_33720.html
Jessie plays Belvidera
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venice_Preserv%27d
Its on from 24 April to 18 May 2014
...........................

Jessie has been acting in between shows - to Her Majesty and Kate Middleton.
She was part of a reception for the Dramatic Arts at Buckingham Palace a couple of days after .Henry V ended.
This seemed to involve everyone from Helen Mirren to Stephen Fry via Helena Bonham Carter, Roger Moore and Steve Mcqueen.....
http://www.mp3-reviews.co.uk/2014/02...ars-at-palace/
http://metro.co.uk/2014/02/18/galler...alace-4308204/

Jessie played a scene from Pygmalion with Trevor Eve and Richard Wilson
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...am-Palace.html

Readers will note that Eliza is one of the biggest cockney roles around..........

We have Jessie as Eliza. Doolittle
http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/6Vlup...on/CVEPBo7PhpG
........................
If you read Jessie's CV on the Venice Preserved Site, it also tells us that Jessie will be/has been in Foyles War. Possibly this is the series being filmed now for transmission in 2015. Endeavour starts soon on ITV, and she seems to be in that somewhere too - unless I missed her in a previous series.
........................
Jessie has been singing at least once too, with Joe Thompson, according to his twitter - possibly at his club??

According to the TV Times, Jessie is in Endeavour this Sunday, ITV 1, 30th March, 2000-2200, playing Kitty Batten.

She's on the TV trailer too if you can spot her.

I said Jessie could turn up anywhere...just found something else she is doing - a bit late, but somone near enough to Manchester may like to go. And she is singing in this one........

She's playing the leading role of Anne in a concert version of Weill's musical The Seven Deadly Sins on April 10 At the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester.
She's with the Halle orchestra conducted by Sir Mark Elder. There's a brief description of the work in the link.

She was really good. She looked totally different with dark, straightish hair. I hope we see her lots more now, she's very talented.

The write up for the Halle concert says that she's recently been on stage in Henry V with Jude Law. Obviously getting the recognition she needs. Should have said the recognition she deserves.

The Tempest with Jessie Buckley as Miranda and Roger Allam as Prospero at the Globe last year was filmed. Its now coming to a cinema near you and is on screen with multiple chains includng the Vue. http://onscreen.shakespearesglobe.com/#/thetempest. The Globe has a list of venues in a bit of a random order There's also a map .http://onscreen.shakespearesglobe.com/#/findvenue . It starts showing may 28, but many venues are showing it June 30 .

Highly recommended . Very funny. And interesting to see what a filmed version looks like .The video will presumably follow the screenings.


.........................
We also have Jessie's next role . She is playing Constnze Weber, Mozart's future bride, in Amadeus at the Chichester Festival theatre. 12 July - 2 Aug. Having married Jude Law in Hnery V, she is next working with Rupert Everett as Salieri .
http://www.thestage.co.uk/news/produ...us-chichester/
http://www.cft.org.uk/amadeus
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amadeus
The less good news is that the tickets seem to have almost sold out- I only just got one.......


.......................
Jessie is underway in Venice Preserved. There's some reviews with some pictures. The reviewers are very positive for Jessie, but often not that enthused about marching through Greenwich (into Deptford) to get there.The dates also seem to have changed with bookings now there till June 7? The matinees also seem to have vanished, and some shows reportedly have taken 3 1/2 - 4 hrs includng transit times, so check running times and transport before you go ...
http://www.whatsonstage.com/london-t...arf_34314.html has a Jessie picture..
http://britishtheatreguide.info/revi...and-bort-10108 has an even more exciting one...

Jessie also did her concert with the Halle orchestra and impressed some more reviewers - this time with her singing .
