Cush Jumbo

The Young Vic theatre, London, August 2020. On the stage where she was due to take on the role of Hamlet before lockdown intervened, actress Cush Jumbo discusses her three cultural highlights with host Ian Rickson. These include the transcendent nature - and the producer’s health and safety headache - of classic musical ‘Singin’ in the Rain’; the comfort Cush finds in Shakespeare’s ‘Sonnet 60’; and the stripped-down power of ‘Redemption Song’ by Bob Marley. More details follow below.

‘What I Love’ is created and hosted by Ian Rickson. The theme music is by PJ Harvey. Sound recording by James Hingley. Photography by Helen Murray. Series Producer Ben Walker. Executive Producer Robert Delamere. Produced for Storyglass by Sarah Murray.
