Review – Leslie Jordan – Fruit Fly, Leicester Square Theatre

Wednesday 13 March 2013


Walking through Leicester Square last night en route to a post-show tincture the Whingers were discussing the square’s new look. Phil related a story about how he was criticising the square’s new metal railings to a friend, not realising he was talking to the person behind its redesign. Oops.

We actually saw Mr Leslie Jordan‘s My Trip Down the Pink Carpet on Saturday night paying real dollars out of our own purses, this all taking place before being introduced to its lovely producer (well, one of them; Lily Tomlin is another) Mike Dvorchak through Mark Shenton.

Are you keeping up with all this?

This “full disclosure” principle is damned complicated and dull. Read the rest of this entry »
