The Bible and evolution go head to head in broad and bawdy comedy Going Ape at the Union Theatre. It’s a frippery that takes not a minute of itself seriously.
Biblical comedy Going Ape! by Andrew Corbet Burcher returns to the Union, directed by Evan Ensign. The premise is what might happen if the Creationist and Evolutionist stories came together around 300 years after God made the world in seven days.
The Show Must Go On is an immersive, cabaret dining experience which packs a punch. The night is complete with a three hour show, a two course meal, a welcome cocktail and bottomless Prosecco, you couldn’t really ask for more.
Due to popular demand, Alexandra Burke and Duncan James will extend their runs in Chicago at the Phoenix Theatre. Burke will play Roxie Hart until 10 November 2018 and James will play Billy Flynn until 17 November.
Chicago must be praised for not pulling punches in exploring subtexts around gender politics and in integrating serious themes with a thoroughly entertaining show.
Thanks to the strong casting, there seems to be a new lease of life in this classic production of Ebb and Kander’s musical Chicago.
