Kiki Lovechild joins a stellar cabaret cast for White Mischief's War of The Worlds

Kiki Lovechild joins a stellar cabaret cast for White Mischief’s War of The Worlds

On 25 May, White Mischief brings its cabaret and costume extravaganza back with the theme this time being a classic sci-fi novel.

Few books have provoked the artistic reaction of HG Wells’ War Of The Worlds. Since it’s publication in 1898, there have been seven films (more than the entire Rocky series) plus the historic 1938 radio adaption narrated by Orson Welles, the seminal concept album by Jeff Wayne and then last year’s less than seminal remake featuring Gary Barlow and Ricky Wilson.

White Mischief are one of the biggest proponents of adapted cabaret and have amassed yet another excellent bill for their loyal followers. Hot-trotting chap-hoppers The Correspondents will be lining up alongside the darkly delicious Desmond O’Connor, twisted clown Kiki Lovechild and the woman who introduced BGT audiences to burlesque, Beatrix von Bourbon.

Dress up as a soldier, a sailor, a priest or a frightened Londoner (one look at the council tax bill should help) and get down to the Scala before the heat ray zaps you.
