Hotel FolliesA wonderful line-up of dancers swishes us back to the 1940s in this revue-style show, which takes over the entire Arts Theatre as performance bursts from every corner of the building. The theatre literally becomes Hotel Follies and its guests are effervescent artistes lodging there; in the heady atmosphere of the post-war era, the world is their oyster and they want to sing and dance about it. It has the air of an elegant but rip-roaring soiree where everyone who's anyone is there, including Jason Piper of Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake fame, Doreen Wells, a principal with The Royal Ballet in the 1960s who has come out of retirement for this production, and dancers from Rambert, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo and Northern Ballet. Director-choreographer Christopher Marney, coming from a stint in Matthew Bourne's Dorian Gray at Sadler's Wells, is also performing. Highlights include an early Bourne duet, a daring pas de 6 set to an updated Bayadere and the live musicians playing a score by Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter and Edith Piaf among others.

 

About Arts Theatre

The Arts Theatre was built in 1927 as a members club, which allowed it to circumvent the censorship laws and perform unusual and avant garde fare. One of the smallest West End theatres, it has retained its reputation for short runs of innovative and controversial productions. More about Arts Theatre
