Lucy can currently be seen in The Gate/ENO’s new production – EFFIGIES OF WICKEDNESS. See here for details. She and the show have received fantastic reviews. 

★★★★ The Stage - “McCormick’s rendition of Brecht and Eisler’s Paragraph 218 (Abortion is Illegal) . . . is devastating. The show is at once a wild pleasure, and deadly serious. With our world continuing to whirl in its own insanity, what better time to come to the cabaret?” 

★★★★ The Independent – “ Lucy McCormick is hilarious . . . Another of these cabarets soon, please.”

★★★★ Evening Standard – “Lucy McCormick injects notes of manic provocation . . . Ellen McDougall’s deliberately chaotic staging is funny and surprising.”

★★★★ Time Out – “The real USP of this show seems to be to serve as a vehicle for its four terrific performers – and they really are superb.” 

★★★★ The Times – “There are astonishing numbers here . . . laughs come from the exuberantly self-debunking Lucy McCormick.”

★★★★ The Observer – “In the best traditions of subversion – and inclusion – it tramples down barriers/”

★★★★ The Arts Desk - “Actress Lucy McCormick’s rendition of Hollaender’s “Sex Appeal” is unexpectedly devastating.”

Lucy played a lead role in Jen Silverman's play, COLLECTIVE RAGE, at the Southwark Playhouse in early 2018. She has received an Offie nomination for Best Female for her portrayal of Bettie in the play. The play itself was also nominated for an Offie and received some great write-ups.

 ‘Beautifully absurd, extremely funny and self-referential… Unapologetically feminist and queer…’ ★★★★ The Stage

‘Beautifully crafted to deconstruct the society in which it exists… admirably fierce and triumphantly queer.’ ★★★★★ London Theatre 1

‘It’s a glorious, rollicking riot of a play which pushes absurdity to the limit – but never at the cost of its soppy human heart.’ ★★★★ The Arts Desk 

 Lucy is a very talented actor/performer whose hit show TRIPLE THREAT, took the Edinburgh Fringe by storm and had a sell-out run at the Soho Theatre in March, April and December of 2017. TRIPLE THREAT showed post-popular prodigy Lucy McCormick and her Girl Squad presenting a provocative, subversive cabaret retelling of the greatest story of all time. 

Lucy has been nominated for the TBC Award at the 2018 Off West End (Offie) Awards for TRIPLE THREAT.

Reviews for Lucy's TRIPLE THREAT:

'A filthy and utterly hilarious New Wave Testament by the smart and fearless Lucy McCormick' ✭✭✭✭ The Stage

'One of the most extraordinary and extreme performers on the Fringe' ✭✭✭✭ The Scotsman

'Lucy McCormick makes her solo debut with what is either the best or the worst show at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe – or probably more accurately, both at the same time' ✭✭✭✭✭ Time Out

Lucy played the lead role in the Soho Theatre's production, ROLLER DINER, in May and June of 2017. The show received rave reviews. Upcoming called it a “classic like Rocky Horror”. 

Lucy was nominated for Emerging Artist at the Total Theatre Awards and was the winner of the TV Bomb Groundbreaker Award. She has recently been announced as a 2017 Artist in Residence for the Royal Vauxhall Tavern’s Duckie nights and is a Research Fellow in the Department of English Drama at Queen Mary University London.

Further reviews for Lucy:

'Lucy McCormick has the moves of Beyonce, the lungs of Christina Aguilera and the morals of a punk iconoclast... As a comedian she is fearless. As a performer she is reckless... She is one of the most extraordinary and extreme performers on the Fringe'

The Scotsman

'A boundary-pulverising event... Fantastically entertaining'
The Guardian

'Shocking, hilarious and profound'
Exeunt

‘Joyously depraved.’

Time Out

‘Triple Threat is a minor miracle.’
 WhatsOnStage

‘A phenomenally watchable performer. With McCormick, anything is a possibility. She floats on the present moment, and there’s no knowing how far she’ll go.’
