Twelfth Night

And the LDN-based events the ThisWeek team is tipping today are…

FILM: Moulin Rouge | Royal Festival Hall | 20 Aug
The jewel of the Southbank Centre’s Festival Of Love season, this big n special screening of Baz Luhrman’s most abidingly-loved movie musical – aside from ‘Australia’, of course – can (can) and will seat 2000 absinthe fans. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: The Beau Defeated | Wilton’s Music Hall | 20 Aug
Written by leading lady playwright Mary Pix all the way back in 1700, witty class satire ‘The Beau Defeated’ hinges on widow (and avid social climber) Mrs Rich, who aspires to move in ‘court circles’. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Twelfth Night | Southwark Playhouse | 20-23 Aug
This re-telling of Shakespeare’s silly tale of enchantment, in which Viola and Sebastian get into many a strange and decadent comic scrape, features a live harpist and opera singers. And regular acting, in this case from the boys, girls, boyish girls and girlish boys of the Oxford University Dramatic Society obvs. Details and tickets here.
