Red hot tip for a great night out in Londontown!

What? Star Follies
Come again? The most original and fantastic thing I have ever done of an evening in Londontown. It’s live karaoke of sorts, but to sheet music and with live accompaniment. Time Out described it as “Imaginative…hilarious…a cross between Hainault Place Bingo Hall and Carshalton Beaches Amateur Dramatic Society!”
Huh? Truly, it’s a special and magical evening, made so by the Master of Ceremonies Mr Donald Levange and Queen of the Keys Madame Bella Borgia. Audience members range in age from teenagers to pensioners.
Where? The Courtyard Theatre, 10 York Way, London N1 9AA (right opposite King’s Cross station).
When? Friday 28 July
Time? Doors open at 7.15pm (there’s a bar) – the show commences at 8pm
Price? £9 (on the door)
Do I have to sing? No, but everyone – from the truly tone deaf (there have been some!) to the professional warbler – gets the same warm reception.

Think a camper version of Cabaret, in which you get to be Liza Minnelli.


Wish I could join you…

Gosh, I always wanted to be Michael York, to be honest. Although in a more Logan’s Run kind of way.

Looks a blast, I shall mention this to the wife!

Oh dear, the pressure is on now.

Comment by Wyndham

Oooooo yes – you must must go! See, I’m just as bossy as UC. When I went with the Ol’ Rooster (both of us participated, by the way), the funniest thing was when a group of Jewish men on a stag night launched into Edelweiss from the Sound of Music. Oi vay, did we laugh!

Even better news is that Star Follies will be back for 5 Mondays in November and December, culminating in a Christmas show on December 11. I am catering the buffet!
