Laura Michelle Kelly is best known to London theatre fans for her star turns in My Fair Lady and Mary Poppins, for which she won last year’s Olivier for Best Actress in a Musical. She’s now hoping to reach an even wider audience by crossing over into the realms of pop music. Her forthcoming album, The Storm Inside, is released by EMI Music on 3 April 2006 but has already received good advance notices. Tonight (Tuesday 21 February 2006), Kelly will be performing songs from the album, including her debut single “There Was a Time”, for a private audience at London nightclub Café de Paris.
