Fascinating AÃ¯da is a British comedy singing group and satirical cabaret act, which has retired twice, most recently in 2004. After the death in 2007 of the group's pianist and musical director, Russell Churney, all plans for a new show were shelved. Some of their most famous songs include Shattered Illusions, Herpes Tango, Lieder and Taboo. It was announced in early March 2008 that they would get together again for a short spell of concerts and possibly a brief tour to celebrate their 25th anniversary, and the show would include new songs. In 2008 they performed at the Jermyn Street Theatre, followed by three nationwide tours. Recently, a Fascinating AÃ¯da Official YouTube Channel was created, which shows various past performances and details event dates, and the new website was set up. They have in the past been described as "Absolutely Fabulous meets Noel Coward, as sung by the Andrew Sisters." On 6 April 2009, Fascinating AÃ¯da released a new album followed by a DVD called "Silver Jubilee" in July 2010, filmed at the Theatre Royal, Windsor. They brought the show to New York in their show which was entitled "Absolutely Miraculous", and was nominated for two Drama Desk Awards on 3 May 2010. They completed a tour of South Africa and then opened in the Charing Cross Theatre in the autumn of 2011.
