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

Tanguera | Sadler’s Wells | 19 Jul-6 Aug
I know I am a sucker for the Latin rhythms, but tell me you aren’t also seduced by the sound of this: “This summer escape to the sultry streets of Buenos Aires with the return of the tango spectacular Tanguera. High-adrenaline choreography, a seductive score and lavish sets bring this gripping love story from turn-of-the-century Argentina to life. Packed with whirlwind twirls, smouldering eyes and flashing legs, this is tango at its most passionate, authentic and dramatic.” See the venue website here for more.

The Borrowers | Polka Theatre | 16 Jun-20 Aug (pictured)
This has been on for a while now, and I honestly thought I had already tipped it, but as it turns out, I haven’t, and it’s madness that I haven’t, because who’d miss a show based on such a brilliant children’s book? What child won’t be interested and engaged by Mary Norton’s story of tiny little people scraping an existence in the hidden places of someone’s home? Go on, show me one. See, you can’t. Take your young fry to witness Arriety’s adventures with the human beans, see this page here.

Good Vibes | Etcetera Theatre | 23 Jul
Well, that’s two shows for you that aren’t connected to the Edinburgh Festival but that non-Fringe run is now over. We can’t help it, because a) there’s so much edpreview going on in this city at the moment, we can’t help keep running into it and b) we love the Fringe. This comedy hour comes to you courtesy of Heather Shaw and Olga Koch, one of whom was Yellow Comedy’s New Comedian of the Year 2016, and the other of whom is currently an Amused Moose Award finalist. Don’t ask me to remember which one is which, click this link to find out.
