Margaret Thatcher: Queen Of Soho

And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…

COMEDY: Margaret Thatcher – Queen Of Soho | Leicester Square Theatre | 17-21 Mar (pictured)
Margaret Thatcher sings and jokes her way through this show about gay rights, the 80s and disco, which was the talk of last year’s Edinburgh Fringe. At the risk of shattering the illusion, I should probably tell you it’s not actually Margaret Thatcher on stage. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Chic featuring Nile Rodgers | The Roundhouse | 20-21 Mar
Nile Rodgers wrote all the songs. All of them. Well, a lot of them. So many that he needs two nights at The Roundhouse to fit them all in. This show will also mark the release of Chic’s first new single in 23 years. So that’s one more song to put on the list. Details and tickets here.

VISUAL ART: Alexander McQueen – Savage Beauty | V&A | 14 Mar – 2 Aug
The first exhibition to celebrate the work of late fashion designer Alexander McQueen in Europe, expanded from its original showing at at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York in 2011, spans his his 1992 MA graduate collection to his unfinished autumn/winter 2010 collection. Details and tickets here.
