Comedy and cabaret has always been at the forefront of Celine’s career. She moved to New York and toured all along the East Coast. Back home, she performed at The Café Royal, The Old Vic and Wilton’s Music Hall to name but a few. Since 2015, Celine's Salon at The Society Club has provided a platform for writers to read their new works. For the last ten years she has immersed herself in researching the legendary Betty May and developing the musical that launched this production.

Alessandro, presently hovering between Milan and New York, brought a welcome dash of nonchalance to our London rehearsals. Forever attentive to what the camera catches but the mind misses he brings a certain magic and precision to his record of our productions.
