About this deal

Musical theatre legend Kerry Ellis is to release an autobiography this summer, with a foreword by Queen’s Brian May. Fans of not only musical theatre will enjoy this thorough and humble insight into the life and career of one of the UK's most established performers and recording artists Kerry Ellis. Kerry Ellis has fast become recognised as the leading lady of West End musicals from her starring roles in London and on Broadway. She has also achieved chart-topping success as a recording artist signed to Universal Decca and has gone onto release six solo recordings in so far including her acclaimed debut album ANTHEMS which featured guest musicians from iconic bands Queen, Foo Fighters and The Darkness. KERRY ELLIS: BUMPKIN TO BROADWAY brings all of this to life, first hand and in beautiful and inspiring detail starting with her early life and finishing by looking at times ahead. As the prologue begins describing her performance with Brian May in the Verona Arena, a roman amphitheatre that could fit up to 30,000 citizens in ancient times, KERRY ELLIS: BUMPKIN TO BROADWAY shares these experiences for the first time in a truly humbling manner that often is a privilege to read. The extent of sloppiness in the approach to the language in this book made it unreadable. Towards the end of her story, Kerry mentions that "the viewing public aren't stupid"; it's a shame that her reading public are being treated as if we were.

And the women of New Bedford, they bloom like their own red roses. But roses only bloom in summer; whereas the fine carnation of their cheeks is perennial as sunlight in the seventh heavens. Elsewhere match that bloom of theirs, ye cannot, save in Salem, where they tell me the young girls breathe such musk, their sailor sweethearts smell them miles off shore, as though they were drawing nigh the odorous Moluccas instead of the Puritanic sands. Davidson and Thompson famously appeared alongside each other for eight seasons on Saturday Night Live, and this will mark the first time the former co-stars have worked with one another since the former’s departure from the sketch comedy show. This will also mark the second time Davidson has worked with Wonders, as they previously played a couple in the 2022 A24 movie, Bodies Bodies Bodies.Kerry Ellis is one of the most recognised leading ladies the West End, and she has also achieved chart-topping success as a recording artist signed to Universal Decca, releasing six solo recordings including her acclaimed debut album “Anthems”, which featured guest musicians from Queen, Foo Fighters and The Darkness.

Kerry Ellis to release her autobiography ‘Bumpkin To Broadway

If I had been astonished at first catching a glimpse of so outlandish an individual as Queequeg circulating among the polite society of a civilized town, that astonishment soon departed upon taking my first daylight stroll through the streets of New Bedford. Kerry Ellis: Bumpkin to Broadway brings all of this to life in a book that is not just for fans of musical theatre, but for fellow actors and other members of the industry but further than this, the book will be loved by anyone who enjoys live performance. But, besides the Feegeeans, Tongatobooarrs, Erromanggoans, Pannangians, and Brighggians, and, besides the wild specimens of the whaling-craft which unheeded reel about the streets, you will see other sights still more curious, certainly more comical. There weekly arrive in this town scores of green Vermonters and New Hampshire men, all athirst for gain and glory in the fishery. They are mostly young, of stalwart frames; fellows who have felled forests, and now seek to drop the axe and snatch the whale-lance. Many are as green as the Green Mountains whence they came. In some things you would think them but a few hours old. Look there! that chap strutting round the corner. He wears a beaver hat and swallow-tailed coat, girdled with a sailor-belt and a sheath-knife. Here comes another with a sou’-wester and a bombazine cloak. For fans of music, musical theatre and everything in between, its a thorough and humble insight into the recording artist’s life.

Go and gaze upon the iron emblematical harpoons round yonder lofty mansion, and your question will be answered. Yes; all these brave houses and flowery gardens came from the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans. One and all, they were harpooned and dragged up hither from the bottom of the sea. Can Herr Alexander perform a feat like that? Other executive producers helping get Bupkis off the ground include Pete Davidson, showrunner Judah Miller, Andrew Singer, and Erin David. Michaels’ Broadway Video is the production company behind the series.
