Looking forward to La Petite Soiree at Aldwych Theatre, London

Our family love going to the theatre, especially when it is a show in the West End but to be honest it doesn't happen all that often nowadays as we live a couple of hours outside London and I can't deny it, London theatre can be expensive for a family of five.

But La Petite Soiree has tickets starting from as little as £15 and that is really affordable. Its not even just the Grand Circle that has seats at this great value price either, there is a child price (for age 15 and under) on the higher price seats too and that remains at £15 throughout (excepting what they call the posh seats), which I am very impressed with.

I suspect you might be wondering what La Petite Soiree is though, I certainly was when the press release first arrived in my in-box. This is what they publicise about the show -
"We love the fact that the powers that be have, for some unknown reason, allowed us into London’s Aldwych Theatre to cause some trouble and bring our own brand of mischief to the West End over the festive season. LA SOIRÉE is a show that has created a shorthand with worldwide audiences in understanding what makes a wild and unforgettable night out at the theatre… joyous, celebratory, hilarious, cheeky, irreverent and at times quite saucy. With LA PETITE SOIRÉE we will deliver all of the above, minus the sauce. The spirit of LA SOIRÉE will run deep through the veins of its afternoon offspring but we look forward to welcoming a new audience with a brand new show." Creative Producer, La Soirée

Although I have to say, having read that I'm still not that much wiser about what the hour long performance will hold for us. An amazing cabaret is where my expectation is at the moment, so I am going to be excited to share my review with you after we have seen the show on Saturday 9th December.

When I was explaining to my husband what we were going to see I said I thought it would be like a menage of all the best and most quirky acts from a variety show like Britain's Got Talent. I've been taking a look at some of the artists who will be part of the performance and it really does give you an expectation of brilliance. There is a bubble blower, aerial straps performer, acrobats, gymnasts, a skating hula hooper, performers who display amazing strength, burlesque showgirls, comedians, singers, puppeteers and so much more. I truly think we are going to have to see it to believe it.

La Soiree is running from 24th November through to 3rd February 2018 and is suitable for ages 17 years plus. Performances from Monday - Friday are at 8pm and Saturday is at 6pm and 9pm, the approximate run time is two hours including an interval.
