The Victorian Music Hall: Discrimination, sexual exploitation, domestic violence and press intrusion. Don’t seem like such “good old days” now, do they?
Nelly Power, star of the Victorian Music Hall struck an early blow for women’s rights by owning her own properties and divorcing her husband. She was a household name and a huge success. Until her hit song was stolen by the young Marie Lloyd. This is the true tale of the soap opera that was Nelly's life, set in the not-so-glamorous world of Victorian showbusiness. It’s a bit Ripper Street and bit of Eastenders With songs! All together now.
