Posted: 30th March 2012
The ever reliable Dean Street theatre is once again pulling out all the stops with another impressive roster of shows for spring and summer 2012, tickets on sale now
The always busy Soho Theatre has another packed schedule laid out for the coming months. Here are our picks from a few of the recent additions. All prices exclusive of booking fees.
A Walk on Part - The Fall of New Labour
Following last year's sell-out run, the adaptation of Chris Mullins' diaries returns. A former MP, Mullin kept witty and, now, critically acclaimed diaries about the turbulent decade in British politics which saw the rise and fall of New Labour. Until Saturday 14th April, £15 - £27.50.
Acclaimed Canadian performer Jeff Achtem brings his 'ridiculously funny' take on life in the swamp to the Soho Theatre having picked up the Total Theatre Award at 2011's Edinburgh Festival. Bring the kids (but under-7s may find it a bit scary)! Tuesday 17th April to Saturday 5th May, £10 - £15.
A new comedy show from the star and creator of BBC3's How Not To Live Your Life, 'These Songs May Contain Jokes' combines indie pop melodies with ridiculously silly lyrics, all backed by a full band. Wednesday 2nd to Saturday 5th May, £15 - £17.50.
Touched... Like a Virgin
Zoe Lewis' comedy about Madonna worship sees Sadie Frost cast as Lesley who, in 1984, finds herself 'touched for the very first time' by the Queen of Pop. Expect pop classics, IVF and tears in this riotously funny, wry look at modern womanhood. Tuesday 22nd May to Saturday 9th June, £10 - £20.
The star of Live at the Apollo and much more returns with a new show about a brother and sister who were best friends but also beat each other up. 'Me and My Brother in Our Pants, Holding Hands' is classic Khorsandi - warm, funny, cheeky. Monday 25th to Thursday 28th June, £15 - £17.50.
The comedian returns with Rich Hall's Hoedown; 'a late-night mashup of music, comedy and gratuitous coloration. The floor will reek of liquor and spent dreams.' And there will be lots of laughs with the big American with a glint in his eye. Wednesday 4th to Sunday 8th July, £15 - £17.50.
And that's just the start; there's plenty more on offer at the Soho Theatre - see below and fill your boots.
