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

Nassim | Bush Theatre | 25-29 Jul
Another edpreview to add to the long list of edpreviews we’ve asked you to consider lately, and this is what’s described as an “audacious theatrical experiment that explores the power of language to unite us in unknown, uncertain times”. No surprise, really, that this is a little bit different – involving unprepared performers – because that same premise fuelled playwright Nassim Soleimanpour’s acclaimed and internationally performed 2011 creation ‘White Rabbit Red Rabbit’. See the venue website here for info.

The Marriage Of Kim K | Arcola Theatre | 25-29 Jul
If you love pop culture, social media, reality shows, but also Mozart then this could be the show for you because it’s a mash-up of The Marriage Of Figaro and a Kardashian musical, focusing on Kim’s 2011 televised (and ill-fated) marriage to NBA basketball star Kris Humphries (I didn’t even know that happened) as well as the story of Mozart’s count and countess. Looks highly promising, for details, see this page here.

The Girls From Oz | The Crazy Coqs | 25 Jul
It sounds as though what The Girls From Oz (aka Kara Lane, Sally White and Ashleigh Fleming) offer is also kind of mash-uppy, in the sense that they sing songs by the likes of  Kylie, Men At Work, John Farnham, AC/DC and Peter Allen, but a good portion of the songs are arranged in the style of swingy singing groups like The Andrews Sisters, so you can expect a distinctly vintage vibe.
