Visit to Performance of “Little Shop of Horrors “ at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre on Tuesday 7th August 2018
Ahh….. Do you remember the long hot dry summer of 2018? Well what could go wrong on a London Mayors’ Association visit to the Open Air Theatre at Regent’s Park to see their production of “Little Shop of Horrors”? Well it rained!
55 Members of the LMA still enjoyed an excellent supper prepared by our own Jenny Bianco and the first half of the excellent production of this popular American musical but the second half got entirely washed off. However, members who made the effort to come back on another evening to see the whole show were rewarded with a classic, over the top, camp musical in the best traditions of the Open Air Theatre. The casting of American Drag Queen Vicky Vox to play the plant (most productions have it as a puppet) added much spice and glamour to the show.
After 2017’s rather dreary production of a “Tale of two Cities “ this year’s “Little Shop of Horrors” reinvigorated the close relationship between the LMA and the Open Air Theatre. Afterall, our very own Councillor Robert Davis is Chairman of the theatre company!
