Resurrected Music Hall superstar Ida Barr presents ‘ARTIFICIAL HIP-HOP’ at Wilton’s Music Hall.

The world’s first music hall star turned hip-hop icon Ida Barr will tread the boards of one of the East Ends best-kept secrets, Wilton’s Music Hall, once more from Thursday 11th to Saturday 13th February 2016 in the brand new show Artificial Hip Hop.

Renowned for her two massive hits Oh You Beautiful Doll and Everybody’s Doin’ It, Ida has now embraced a whole new musical genre which she has christened Slipped Disco, also known as Artificial Hip Hop, as featured on various pirate grime radio stations around London’s East End.

To great acclaim, she has launched her new album, Get Old or Die Tryin’, and she invites you to join her for an old-fashioned, new wave sing-a-long.  Ida’s going to be mashing up Rhianna with Dan Leno, Omi with Noel Coward and Marie Lloyd with Eminem, whipping you all into a frenzy for her epic rendition of Jerusalem by Will.i.am Blake mashed up with Nicki Minaj.  Believe us, you ain’t heard nothin’ like it.

Ida Barr is the creation of Olivier-award winner Christopher Green also known for BBC Radio 4 favourite Tina C. Ida has graced stages at the National Theatre, Tate Modern and Britain and the Barbican, as well as livening up many a variety and comedy night around the globe. She’s appeared in her own series, ‘Artificial Hip Hop’, on BBC Radio 4 with special guest, the beatboxer known as Shlomo.

Thursday 11th to Saturday 13th February 2016
8pm and also 3pm on Saturday

Wilton’s Music Hall, Graces Alley, London, E1 8JB
