Jinkx Monsoon & Major Scales: The Vaudevillians

After selling out an often-extended Off-Broadway run, an Australian tour and a sell-out run at Soho Theatre, RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Jinkx Monsoon presents The Vaudevillians, a bawdy, rowdy musical comedy co-starring composer and musician Major Scales.

Throughout the 1920’s husband and wife performers Kitty Witless and Dr. Dan Von Dandy toured the United States as The Vaudevillians, wowing audiences with their edgy, original music. One day, while touring through Antarctica, they were victims of a devastating avalanche and were buried under two tons of sleet and snow – instantly freezing them alive.

But thanks to Global Warming, they recently thawed out only to discover that pop artists had stolen their music and passed it off as their own. Now, at long last, they are taking to the stage to reclaim their songs, performing their music as originally composed. It’s a vintage cabaret with a twist of drag.

Suitable for 16+ years.

WHY? ‘The laughs are jam-packed and the musicianship is flawless.’ Time Out Melbourne

£16.50

Griff Rhys Jones - Where Was I?

The star of Not the Nine o'clock News, Smith & Jones and Three Men In A Boat.

Griff as he airs stories, anecdotes, reminiscences and outright lies – from forty years of travelling – down rivers and up mountains, into Africa, out of India, and across the arid wastes of the BBC canteen. It's a career, if you mean bouncing chaotically downhill without a map.

WHY? ‘Great comedy’ ★★★★ The Telegraph

Mark Watson - MW

After more than 100 dates on the road in 2016 with his best-reviewed show to date, 'I'm Not Here', and a similarly marathon effort with the previous tour, Mark Watson is amazed to find there are STILL some areas of the country he's not visited much, and some towns that have been neglected altogether.

It's hard to be everywhere at once, so he's narrowed it down to a sensible plan: for the next tour, Watson will only visit places beginning with M or W, his initials - as they've already shown a commitment by having those names in the first place. A few of these will be favourite old haunts like Winchester or Manchester, but quite a few of them are the result of Googling and quite a number are so remote that we won't know they definitely exist until we get there. Also, some aren't actually towns so much as trains (from Marylebone to Wycombe), or ferries (across the Mersey), or a helicopter museum (in the double-point-scoring Middle Wallop).

The material will be a mixture of the classic and the never-before-seen. And in some cases a fair bit of it will be about being on a train.

The Thing That Came From Over There!

A rip-roaring comedy adventure, inspired by horror movies of the 1950s.

It’s 1912 and a meteor has crashed near the base camp of hapless explorer Captain Reginald Cranston Scot-t-t. What ancient evil lurks inside the crater? What is the dark secret of the slimy fungus and the parasitic space worms? With visual gags, verbal wit, giant puppetry and even a little bit of live music.
