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

Garry Starr Performs Everything | Soho Theatre | 20-24 Nov (pictured)
We’ve already tipped this once this autumn, back in September when it was on at the Rosemary Branch, but now it’s on again, for a longer run, and in a very central location, we felt it was important to tip it again. Basically because it’s bloody brilliant. Our reviewer who saw it in August in Edinburgh thought it was marvellous, noted its cross-generational appeal, and praised the “clownish but clever comic chaos” dished up by Damien Warren-Smith. For all the details, see this page here.

The Knot | The Place | 20-21 Nov
This looks fab, a dance show focusing on matrimony and ritual, which promises to examine romanticised perceptions of marriage with a sharp and humorous approach. Thus runs the blurb: “You are cordially invited to a wedding celebration with a difference… the bride, groom, best man and bridesmaids are all world-class dancers and audience members are the guests.” See the venue website here for more.

Super Duper Close Up | The Yard Theatre | 13-24 Nov
“We’re all starring in the movie of our life. Selfie after selfie, post after post. It’s exhausting. So take a break. Bask in the glow of the big screen as someone else has a go. See the heroine all dewy-eyed as the camera zooms in. And in. And in.” We ran a Q&A about this last week, so you probably already know all about it, but I just thought I’d remind you to make sure you see it in these last few days if you haven’t already.
