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

The Magic Flute | King’s Head | 4 May-3 Jun (pictured)
The excellent Charles Court Opera’s acclaimed production of ‘The Magic Flute’ is on at the King’s Head, and the performance space there has, I understand, been pretty much transformed into a South American jungle, so that sounds pretty promising, and there are also puppets, which is great, because I love puppets, as well as Mozart. And I bet you all agree. See this page here for more.

Come With Me | Camden People’s Theatre | 12 May
I’ve tipped Helen Duff before and I will tip her again, because she is blooming brilliant, and this show, in which she tackles the topic of her journey towards experiencing a first orgasm with her excellent LAMDA and L’Ecole Philippe Gaulier-honed clowning skills. We interviewed her about this acclaimed show when it was on in Edinburgh last summer, so you can learn more about it by reading that, here, and details about this performance are right about here.

Boris & Sergey’s Astonishing Freakatorium | Wilton’s Music Hall | 9-13 May
And onto another outfit we discovered via the Edinburgh Fringe, Flabbergast Theatre, and their latest Boris & Sergey show, which is on at Wilton’s Music Hall this week. I didn’t realise this until it was almost too late to tip it, sadly, so I hope you will be abe to squeeze in a visit for one of these later performances. Brilliant and macabre, dark and witty, brilliant puppetry for grown ups. Click here.
