Got some spare time over the next couple of weeks? Here is Love London’s guide to some of the best things to see and do before they leave London.
1. Kinky Boots, Adephi Theatre – having officially opened in London last Tuesday evening, the critics reaction to the show has been mainly positive and the public have taken the musical to their hearts. It is based on the 2005 film and a true story before it was made into a highly Broadway musical. Already booking until February next year, it wouldn’t be a surprise if it was to extend its run at the Adelphi Theatre.
2. Gypsy, Savoy Theatre – Imelda Staunton’s performance is one reason to go and see this before it closes on the 28th November. The story is based on the real life story of Gypsy Rose Lee and her rise to fame and her relationship with her mother. For Love London Love Culture’s full review visit here .
3. The Etienne Sisters, Theatre Royal Stratford East – this powerful new play with music by Che Walker is worth a look if you are looking for something that challenges you. Three highly talented performances from the cast and some strong themes that run throughout the production makes it well worth a watch. Love London Love Culture’s review is here . It runs at the Theatre Royal Stratford East until the 3rd October.
4. The EY Exhibition:The World Goes Pop!, Tate Modern – bold, colourful and confrontational, Tate Modern’s latest EY exhibition reveals a very different and surprising side to Pop Art that will get visitors thinking about the meaning behind the paintings and other material that the Tate has put together for this exhibition. While it seems to run out of things to say by the end, there is no doubting the passion that has gone into each and every part of the exhibition. Runs at the Tate Modern until 24th January 2016.
5. Side by Side by Sondheim, Brockley Jack Studio Theatre – if you are a fan of the music of Stephen Sondheim then you don’t want to miss out on this very special show. Featuring a combination of well known songs and some that will be less familiar to audiences, it makes for a very lively and entertaining evening. It runs at the studio theatre until the 26th September, so hurry for tickets now!
