From 11 November – 8 January 2017, La Soiree returns with its quirky, colourful and super cool cabaret of new and much-loved acts. Get ready to be enticed, enthralled and thoroughly delighted by this unique and irresistible world of drama and delight.
The iconic Spiegeltent will be housed for the first time at the Leicester Square site this Christmas. The award-winning show brings a tantalising roll call of brilliant acts from across the world to the centre of London.
Returning performances from old favourites include; the glamorous Spanish/Croydon-ish Ursula Martines and her striptease slash mischievous disappearing hanky act, The English Gents with their flexible acrobatic yet stiff upper lip display, and Captain Frodo, the globally loved tennis racquets fan and contortionist-bending-body-manipulator-performer-extraordinaire. Other artists include Hamish McCann’s Pole Act and Denis Lock’s Bubble Act.
These performing gems will be complimented by the sensational New Orleans songstress Acantha Lang, quirky juggler Olivia Porter, and the dangerously good acrobat David Girard with his new ‘CirQle’ apparatus. More dazzling delights will be found in the dizzying hula-hooping marvel Satya Bella, mind-boggling trapeze artist Jarred Dewey, and the comedy couple touring sensation, Daredevil Chicken.
This extraordinary theatrical show won the 2015 Olivier award for best entertainment and has now been home to over 75 performers in different cities across the globe. Travelling to 5 continents with over 150 acts between them, it is an evening of surprises that will blow minds and drop countless jaws. Audiences and critics alike have been wowed by La Soirée’s ever-expanding, fabulously dysfunctional family since the company first played together in Edinburgh back in 2004.
La Soirée is presented by Brett Haylock, Mark Rubinstein and Mick Perrin. It may contain nudity and is recommended for ages 18+. Further acts and special plans for New Year’s Eve will be announced in due course.
