BiographyEdit

Born in Ilford, Essex, Robertson studied at Finch Stage School and later became a cabaret dancer and a member of BBC Two's The Young Generation. Shortly after, she made her debut on the West End and appeared in many successful shows, as well as marrying writer Alan Jay Lerner after playing Eliza in My Fair Lady.

Whilst she became best known for singing roles, Robertson appeared in a number of straight plays, including featuring in the original cast of Seven Deadly Sins Four Deadly Sinners and playing in pantomime on more than one occasion.

SingingEdit

Robertson made her debut in the "quintet" of A Little Night Music (as Mrs. Andersson) and soon after appeared in the revue Side by Side by Sondheim. She made her Broadway debut in Dance a Little Closer, though this was less than successful, and released a solo album entitled Somebody's Girl.

Robertson also originated the role of love interest Bella Spellgrove in Sherlock Holmes: The Musical and performed in The King and I for President Reagan. She became known in later years for playing Madame Giry in both Love Never Dies and the 25th Anniversary Concert for The Phantom of the Opera.
