The doyenne of entertainment Patti Boulaye recently described

as “A bundle of fizz” is back with her new one-woman show

“I’m Comin Out”.   In the show, Patti weaves stories of her life

and career, while comparing and contrasting it with the exciting

life of the legendary singer Diana Ross.   She also sings songs

by other such greats as Etta James, Puccini, Bizet and more.

Her moving autobiography ‘The Faith of A Child’ charts her life through wealth, poverty, near death in the Biafran War, to

stardom. She was awarded an OBE for her charity work in

the UK and Africa where she built five Clinics and also a

school with Prince Harry’s charity.

Patti was the African face of Lux for 29 years and has starred

in three major films: “Bisi” said to be Africa’s biggest grossing

film, “Hussy” with Helen Mirren and “Music Machine” Britain’s answer to “Saturday Night Fever”. She’s a “Visiting Teaching

Fellow” at Middlesex University with an Honorary Doctorate

Degree for Arts and Education. Recent TVs include BBCTV

“Celebrity Master Chef”, ‘The Real Marigold Hotel’ and ITV’s

“Good Morning Britain”.

What the Critics say:

“Boulaye’s appeal lies as much in her ability to charm an

audience as it does to woo them with a sublime talent as this production proves.” – The Stage

“I was totally smitten by Patti Boulaye ” – Musical Theatre


“Makes all others pale and unsatisfactory by comparison” – Cabaret Hotline

“Has the packed room hollering for more” – Lord Archer – The Spectator

“The audience was completely captivated by Ms. Boulaye’s

talent and charisma.” – Jazz Journal

The Shows: Bio

Having been wowed by Patti Boulaye in last year’s production of 'Bille and Me', I couldn’t wait to see her new one woman show, ‘Aretha & Me’.
Tonight did not disappoint. Patti is a consummate story teller, with a wicked sense of humour, who by the end of the show had every member of the audience on their feet, dancing and singing.
