After a ten year absence, la Clique is back in London performing in Leicester Square in the custom-built Spiegeltent. Don’t be deceived by the outside of this building as once inside you are transported into the realm of mystery and intrigue ready to be entertained and amazed by the eclectic range of performers.
World-class Weimar cabaret diva Bernie Dieter is the host for the evening’s extravaganza of circus-style acts, some incredible singing accompanied by the La Clique Palace Orkestra and some jaw-dropping trapeze work. She boasts that “At La Clique we celebrate weirdness” and what an incredible celebration it is.
Vocalist Kelly Wolfgramm is an exceptionally talented singer, her interaction with the band members and the other acts demonstrated that they have a fantastic working rapport.
The cabaret acts vary from Jamie Swan’s crowd wetting performance in and out of the water-filled bath, Zoe Marshall’s aerial hair-hanging act where her hair is the only part of her connection to the trapeze rope and the suave juggling act with champagne glasses by Florian Brooks.
This show is a heady mix of performances which has absolutely nothing to dislike about it and definitely a fantastic Christmas adult production to treat yourself to. An absolutely flawless production bought together by director Craig Ilott.
La Clique is definitely one show in London this Christmas that should not be missed.
