The award-winning and much-loved La Soirée has announced multiple new acts for its residency at the Aldwych Theatre this Winter, including a pair of awesome acrobats, an aerial hoop artist, the death-defying Chilly Brothers Cradle Act, and tension straps artist LJ Marles.

Playing from 24 November to 3 February 2018, and featuring fabulous cabaret performers from across the globe, the production is delighted to reveal the newest incarnation of La Soirée’s infamous dysfunctional family, as they revel in their posh new surroundings and make mischief in London’s glittering West End.

Acts include Mallakhamb India!, featuring Rajesh Amrale and Rajesh Rao. Rarely performed outside of its homeland India, the amazing ancient art of Mallakhamb arrives on the West End stage, with this pair of awesome acrobats blowing audiences away with their extraordinary mix of unparalleled strength, sensational speed and spectacular skill.

The line-up also includes new La Soirée performers in six-time German Rhythmic Gymnastics Champion, Lea Hinz, who gives the aerial hoop a unique spin; home-grown Hackney talent Marles, who takes aerial straps to new heights; the darling dexterous Michele Clark on the hula hoop; hair-hanger Fancy Chance; hand-to-hand performers Leon Fagbemi and Klodi Dabkiewicz; and Symoné on the hula hoops.

Returning favourites to the La Soirée family include the inimitable comic powerhouse Amy G, puppet cabaret performers Cabaret Decadense – rollicking, sassy, sexy and hilarious – and vaudevillian duo Daredevil Chicken Club.

Putting the Aldwych Theatre in a spin, La Soirée will transform this traditional theatre into an intimate cabaret club with La Soirée’s much-loved, in-the-round seating still in place. So step in from the cold, leave your troubles at the door and prepare to be charmed, astonished and electrified by the very loveable crème de la crème of the cabaret world…

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.
