Once again we are fortunate to have the summer season of theatre at The Scoop - and it is Free!! Not much that's free in SE1, lol
I saw 'Helen of Troy', 10 days ago, which was delightful and, at only 1hr 15mins, just the right amount of time for sitting outside, on a coolish evening.
Over the last weekend, I visited 'Jungle Book'.... twice! It is for Children.....but I was not the only unaccompanied adult, singing along to all the old, familiar songs from Disney's film.
It lasts just over 1hr, and the first part is presented by Kipling himself [looking remarkably like Guy Pearce].
The staging, choreography and costumes are great - as is the enthusiasm and talent of the Company.
Go see - it's a great way to spend a summer's evening [when they return!].
One request - if you do go, particularly to Helen of Troy, please don't sit having endless 'conversations' during the performance. I came close to murder, that night, lol. Two local residents who really should have stayed at home.
Go - enjoy :http://www.morelondon.com/scoop.html
