Elaine Paige, the undisputed “First Lady of Musical Theatre” Celebrates 40 years on the stage this year. Memories is the remarkable story of her own life, on and off the stage, in words and pictures.
She takes us through her extraordinary career from her earliest stage appearances, to her many starring roles in some of the biggest musicals of the modern era, including Hair, Grease, Evita, Cats, Chess, Piaf, Sunset Boulevard and The Drowsy Chaperone. She tells it how it was, sharing moments of joy and regret.

Illustrated with an extraordinary collection of images in colour and black and white, Memories depicts Elaine Paige in some of her most iconic roles – Evita, Grizabella from Cats, Edith Piaf, and Norma Desmond from Sunset Boulevard – but also shows Elaine away from the stage, in childhood, with family and friends, and on her travels. Above all we get an insight into the life and career of a true national treasure in this revealing, funny and personal book.
