Synopsis

The Marni Nixon Story


Following a sell-out run at 2018's Edinburgh Fringe Festival and a successful 2019 Australian tour, Lambert Jackson is thrilled to present Eliza Jackson in The Voice Behind the Stars.


This one-woman show tells the story of the most prolific ghost singer of all time, Marni Nixon: "the best film diva you (almost) never saw". Dubbing for over fifty Hollywood films, she was the singing voice for stars such as Audrey Hepburn, Deborah Kerr, Natalie Wood and Marilyn Monroe. Featuring much-loved tunes from West Side Story, My Fair Lady, The King and I and many more.


In a classic story of old Hollywood, Marni was forbidden from telling anyone what films she sang on and for whom. She lived her life in the shadows until one infamous interview with Deborah Kerr led to her story being totally uncovered. But despite all of this notoriety, to this day, her work is still mostly unknown.


This show tells her story - the scandal, the secrets and the songs. It has something for everyone and exposes the truth behind some of the world's most loved movie musicals.


This is a one act, one hour show - no interval.
