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

Buttons – A Cinderella Story | King’s Head Theatre | 23 Nov-5 Jan
Looks like we are entering that panto time of year, which is slightly scary, because where in the name of all that is holy did my autumn disappear to? But never mind, I freaking love Christmas so hurrah, it’s panto season. Let’s start with this one, over at King’s Head Theatre, courtesy of the always excellent Charles Court Opera, who of course have previous panto form. See this page here for more.

Robinson Crusoe | Greenwich Theatre | 23 Nov-13 Jan
And go on, as we’re starting the panto season, let’s really go with the panto season and tip another. This time it’s the turn of Greenwich theatre, whose production of ‘Robinson Crusoe’ stars renowned and regular dame Andrew Pollard and promises an “action-packed adventure awash with pirates, romance, exotic creatures and songs-a-plenty! Hit the high seas with Robinson as he battles the wicked Pirate Queen to find the lost gold.” Hurrah, time to get buckling the swash. Details here.

Fringe Wives Club – Glittery Clittery | Soho Theatre | 23 Nov
I wanted to tip an earlier performance of this award winning cabaret show, actually, but when I came to write the tip it was all sold out, so I postponed it until today. At the moment it looks like there are tickets left for this one but you know, don’t delay. Anyway, this was quite the hit at the most recent Edinburgh Festival, and in fact we ran a feature on it. See our Q&A here, and head this-a-way to get booking.
