Murray’s Cabaret Club Hardback Book

By Benjamin Levy. Foreword by Dita Von Teese.

231 Pages, lavishly illustrated throughout with black & white and colour photos and illustrations.

From 1913 to 1975, Murray’s Cabaret Club in Beak Street, Soho was filled with dancing showgirls performing to packed audiences. Percival ‘Pops’ Murray became the owner in 1933 and introduced London to the ‘Cabaret Floorshow’. Everything was perfect – from the dancers’ costumes to the gleaming stage and the music. However, in 1963,  the Profumo Scandal erupted. A love triangle between a Murray’s showgirl, Britain’s Minister of War, and a Soviet spy, all at the height of the Cold War.  This book reveals the story of  Murray’s with photos and illustrations, including the costumes worn for London’s most glamorous floorshow.
