Dame Patricia Routledge in conversation with Edward Seckerson.

It is still one of the best kept secrets in show business that Patricia Routledge trained not only as an actress but also as a singer and had considerable experience and success in musical theatre,  both in this country and in the United States of America, for which she won a Tony and a Laurence Olivier Award, among other accolades.

In this fascinating encounter with the writer and broadcaster Edward Seckerson she recalls this very special part of her career with access to some rare and treasured recordings.

Writer, broadcaster and podcaster Edward Seckerson, Chief Classical Music Critic of The Independent newspaper and a founder member of The ArtsDesk.com, wrote and presented the long-running BBC Radio 3 show Stage and Screen.
