November 1954: “An Artist Supreme in Her Medium” – Beatrice Lillie, at the King’s Theatre

An article on page three of The Glasgow Herald, on Tuesday the 2nd of November, 1954, describes An Evening with Beatrice

Lillie, with the comments:


“THOSE fortunate enough to visit the King’s Theatre, Glasgow, this week will see and hear an artist supreme in her own

medium—sharp satire, delicate burlesque, and comedy delivered with wit and point. That artist is Beatrice Lillie …”



The article continues with an account of Lillie’s songs and sketches, and refers to Leslie Bricusse, who acted as compere

and provided “some brilliant spots of comedy himself.” Other performers in the show also are mentioned.



Leslie Bricusse (1931-2021) was a British composer, lyricist, and playwright. Please see Wikipedia for more information.
