Today in London: Monday 25 February 2013
By TW Editorial | Published on Monday 18 February 2013
It’s like your mother surely always told you, every week should be started with a ThreeWeeks Editors’ Award winner? No?
Well, there’s one of those amongst today’s TW selection, or by all means opt for some LA punk, some religion mocking musical theatre, or some updated good old fashioned British satire.
TODAY’S COMEDY CHOICES
Folken Britain, Hen & Chickens Theatre, 25 Feb
A ThreeWeeks Editors’ Award winner all the way back in 2010, character comic Susan Harrison proves she still has ‘it’ via this surreal and “slightly silly” foray into lo-fi social satire. Oh, and folk. Details and tickets here.
TODAY’S MUSIC CHOICES
FIDLAR, The Garage, 25 Feb
Acronymic ‘Wake, Bake, Skate’ yanks FIDLAR (aka ‘Fuck It Dog, Life’s A Risk’) relay what certainly won’t be a quiet set at The Garage tonight. They’ll press ‘play’ on their eponymous first LP, as features new single ‘Gimme Something’. Details and tickets here.
TODAY’S THEATRE CHOICES
The Book Of Mormon, Prince Of Wales Theatre, 25 Feb – 27 Mar
A brash and lascivious musical satire scripted by risque ‘South Park’/’Team America’ genii Trey Parker and Matt Stone, this Broadway smash-hit is shifting seats at an extraordinary rate. But not so fast that you can’t still buy tickets. As an extra safeguard against any mad dashes and/or disappointed drama-fans, POW Theatre bosses are making 21 top-price passes available on-the-day of each performance. Tickets and details here.
Yes, Prime Minister, Churchill Theatre, 25 Feb – 2 Mar
Back in the capital again after circling national theatres, Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn revise their perennially of-its-time PM parody to align with present financial climes. Details and tickets here.
