Nights Out: Theatre Trip to 'La Soiree' at Aldwych Theatre

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

At the end of November, I took my parents to see the circus and acrobatics show 'La Soiree' during their visit to London. I had never been before, but I had heard raving reviews about the show when it was on South Bank a couple of years ago. It seems that the winter festivals at South Bank have disappeared and perhaps moved north of the river now. However, I wanted to visit it. Of course, it wasn't quite the same show. The acts were different, but because the show had done so well the past couple of years, they had the chance to return their acts to the theatre this time.


Now, this is the type of show you really need to drink alcohol during and make an evening out of it with pre-theatre (and ideally post-theatre drinks). We didn't. I didn't know exactly what the acts were, and it was a bit risque for not having had anything to drink. There are bars on site, but I don't drink too often anyway, plus I was with my parents who do not drink. Of course, we are still talking about the show about a week later. I did speak to the bloke who told me about the show, and the acts were vastly different and more risque than he'd experienced. They also have a version of the acts for children during the day. This play is on quite late, starting at 8:00 in the evening, which probably accounts for people getting out of work and getting at least three pints in before the show. Of course, you will want to have post-theatre drinks as well because you may wish to forget some of the shenannigans that went on in the theatre.
