Culture vultures visiting luxury hotels in London may soon be booking tickets to see the Vaudeville Theatre’s performance of the Flying Karamazov Brothers.
Located on the strand, the juggling, acrobatic and music act returns to a London stage after it’s last West End performance 17 years ago.
A bizarre blend of theatrical performances, topical satire and circus skills, the Flying Karamazov Brothers will only be available on a limited run, following its success on Broadway.
“For a strictly limited run you’ll be entranced by the wit, comedy and virtuoso skills of these world renowned maverick masters of new-vaudeville in their new London home,” commented the venue.
Furthermore, visitors to the historical vaudeville-venue can catch Antony Sher reprising his performance in Arthur Miller’s Broken Glass.
From September 14th through to December 10th, the multi-award winning drama will tell the story of a Jewish couple living in New York whose lives are shaken by the events of Kristallnacht in Nazi Germany.
During the show’s previous run at the Tricycle theatre, critics heaped praise on the production, with Whatsonstage.com awarding it four out of five stars.
The reviewer commented: “Antony Sher is superb as Philip.”
Brian Logan of the Guardian added: “Antony Sher brings the male half of this disastrous marriage to eye-catching life. So agonisingly does he depict emotional constipation that I vowed never again to stifle a tear when a sob would do.”
Pre and primary school children can be introduced to theatrical life through the Vaudeville Theatre’s production of The Tiger Who Came to Tea.
Based on the best-selling picture book, the stage version has been adapted by David Wood – the writer and director who saw success with the Fantastic Mr Fox, The BFG, The Witches, Babe and the Sheep Pig and many more younger audience plays.
“The show is the ideal introduction to theatre for pre and primary school children and their families,” commented the organisers.
“Featuring magic and sing-along songs, The Tiger Who Came to Tea is perfect for developing literacy and listening skills, and audience participation is highly encouraged!”
