"If one wishes to see a raw, human performance exploring a life story, combined with the smoothness and tremendous skill of a classically-trained soprano, then Lauren Lee Innis-Youren‘s Hand Hold My Hummus: The Secret Life of a Stubborn Soprano is right for you.

Billy Buckett: A Rock N Roll Love Story (2018)

Blue Curtains: Meredith Walker

“Dorrington and Innis-Youren shine as central couple Billy and Jan. Their vocals and characterisation are spot-on in the pivotal roles. Innis-Youren, in particular, has an era-evocative voice that is flawlessly showcased in Act Two’s opening number ‘Mr Cool’, in which an isolated Jan shares her steadfast faith in Billy.”
