Cabaret at Crazy Coqs

25th July

After a sell-out show at New York’s 54 Below, multi-award-winning composer and lyricist Eamonn brings his evening of moving, funny and bittersweet songs to Crazy Coqs. The show will feature songs from Eamonn’s vast catalogue of musicals, including Fanny and Stella, Mrs Beeton Says…, The House of Mirrors and Hearts, and his critically acclaimed retelling of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, which premiered at The Other Palace in 2018. There will also be a chance to hear some brand-new songs from Unexpected Beautiful, a new collaboration with NYC-based writer SEVAN.

Eamonn will be joined by his long-time friend and collaborator Alex Young (Standing at the Sky’s Edge, Into the Woods), renowned London cabaret artist Hartley Wilson, and the inimitable Oscar Conlon-Morrey (Only Fools and Horses, Mother Goose). Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear the songs of a distinctive and powerful voice in British musical theatre.

Fanny & Stella at NAMT

October 2021

​Eamonn and SEVAN’s ‘f*cking fabulous’ new musical Fanny & Stella has been selected from over 250 new musicals to be featured in the 33rd Annual Festival of New Musicals, hosted by the National Alliance for Musical Theatre in New York in October.

Frederick Park and Ernest Boulton, unremarkable middle-class boys, flee their suburban upbringing to live as Fanny & Stella in 1870s London – a heady world of drag, music hall, sex and more sex. A run-in with the law casts them in the sensational show-trial of the ‘He-She Ladies’. Dominating the press and scandalizing the nation, the ordeal tests their extraordinary friendship and reveals the deep corruption of an empire fighting to remain respectable.

Mrs Beeton Says…

December 2018

Music & lyrics by Eamonn O’Dwyer
Book by Helen Watts

Mrs Beeton Says… examines the life and legacy of an extraordinary woman: a spirited journalist, a tireless entrepreneur, and if not a perfect homemaker, then certainly a queen of organisation.

In a world where a woman could not vote, own a house, nor even ride a bicycle, Mrs Beeton’s book gave the women of England something they desperately wanted: a bit of control. Far more than just a cookbook, it was a manual for life; and as the wheels of British industry span faster than ever before, it became a lifeline for every maid and wife and mother trying to hold her ground in an ever-changing age.

‘A witty, edgy score’
