Fresh from producing a sell-out immersive cinema experience of Rent in an abandoned lot (with guest performances from the 20th-anniversary cast), Neighbourhood Events have just announced the Winter schedule for their hugely popular West End Musical Brunches – and we think they sound super fun.
Hosted by the stars of some of the biggest musicals in town, the West End Musical Brunch is a themed event like none other I’ve heard about – with five hours of non-stop showtunes, food and bottomless booze. You arrive at 12pm, characters show you to your seats and make you feel at home and you tuck into 90 minutes of free-flowing prosecco, cocktails and a two-course meal. When the food’s cleared, the main event begins – the host and dance ensemble burst into song, before introducing more guest performers for exclusive and intimate performances.
A quick glance at the winter line-up is super promising – the bill includes leads from Wicked, Les Miserables, Hairspray, Thriller, 5 Guys Named Moe, Little Shop Of Horrors, Priscilla and more. The party then continues once the show is finished, ticket holders get their chance to put on a show of their own with a cast of friends to the biggest uptempo musical theatre hits.
The majority of dates are scheduled to take place at the prestigious Cafe De Paris (check the website for more info) and tickets start from just £20 which seems reasonable. We’ll be going to the Christmas special in December, and hope to see y’all there for a jazz-hands-tastic afternoon.
