Jonny Woo’s All Star Brexit Cabaret
Jonny Woo and Richard Thomas bring you sequins and satire in this musical Brexit cabaret
Drag Superstar Jonny Woo and Olivier Award-winning composer of Jerry Springer the Opera Richard Thomas bring you this sequin spangled musical ripped straight from the headlines. This is an uproarious yet seriously glamorous satire about the referendum of 2016 and the ensuing furore of ‘Brexit’ with a star-studded cast of top cabaret talent. ‘In’ or ‘Out’? There’s a hell of a lot to sing about.
A smash at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018, Jonny Woo, the ‘king and queen’ of London’s alternative scene, and musical theatre’s ‘enfant terrible’ Richard Thomas have written a score that is full of unforgettable songs including ‘Referendum-dumb’, ‘Swivel Eyed Loon’ and ‘The Ballot Box Ballad’.
Expect glittering star turns from Jayde Adams as Boris Johnson, Le Gateau Chocolat as Nigel Farage, Diane Chorley as Angela Merkel and Myra Dubois as Britannia. Neither Woo nor Thomas intend to bore you with the same old rhetoric or statistics, rather thrill you with hi-jinx, big laughs and unexpected emotional clout.
