With an illustrious career spanning from the mid-seventies, this legendary American dance Diva, Jocelyn Brown is well known for her powerful soul-shaking voice. The unforgettable line "I've Got the Power" from the Snap! hit and the sentiment and strength of her "Somebody Else's Guy" exemplify the dance floor memories of a generation.
With more than twenty hits on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, four of which have hit number one, she remains the “go-to girl” for artistes looking for commanding vocals. Jocelyn’s amazing vocal talent is credited with putting the hit-factor in so many great tracks over the years, from early disco floor-fillers such as "Get Dancing", and "In the Bush" through to the chart success of artistes like Kym Mazelle, Incognito, Todd Terry, Nuyorican Soul, Cassius and Blame.
The theatre currently seats 1,371 and hosts a busy programme of touring drama, West End shows and stand-up comedy. It was the home of the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company between 1990 and 1997. In January 2006 the Alexandra Theatre changed management once again, to be managed by Live Nation, a company that specialised in concert promotion and large venue operations. It is now owned by the Ambassador Theatre Group, and after a minor refurbishment the group renamed the theatre the New Alexandra Theatre.
