Simon Russell Beale plays the cross-dressing Captain Dennis whose performances of Marlene Dietrich, Vera Lynn and Carmen Miranda form the centrepiece of Peter Nichols‘ award-winning comedy, Privates on Parade at the Noel Coward Theatre.
In Privates on Parade, Private Steven Flowers is posted to the Song and Dance Unit in South East Asia during the second world war, where serving under the flamboyant Captain Terri Dennis he discovers it takes more than just a uniform to become a man.
