Audiences in the capital will soon be able to witness something a little different thanks to the theatre group Les Enfants Terribles as “The Vaudevillians” opens its doors at the Charing Cross Theatre (formerly the New Players Theatre). It is a story that combines elements of an array of popular theatrical classics, with murder mystery and vaudevillian music hall thrown into the mix. The result is likely to be a show that few will forget as the unique and wonderful “The Vaudevillians”, with a script from Oliver Lansley and Tomas Gisby, opens its doors in April 2011.
Oliver Lansley has written for numerous productions both onstage and onscreen in a career that has been on the rise since 2008. For the stage his work, in addition to “The Vaudevillians”, includes “Ernest and the Pale Moon”, “The Terrible Infants” and “Immaculate” and one thing that these, including “The Vaudevillians”, have in common is that they were seen by audiences at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. But he has also been involved in a number of shows for the screen, which encompass television comedies like “Whites” and “Misfits”. It makes him a sought-after artist and one whose work is likely to go down a treat with London theatre audiences in 2011.
And he pens “The Vaudevillians” alongside Tomas Gisby, whose previous credits include number stints as an actor, composer and sound designer as well as writer. Before “The Vaudevillians” he has worked as an actor in “Ernest and the Pale Moon” and as sound designer on other productions like “The Infant”, “These Four Walls” and “The Terrible Infants”.
But how do you go about describing “The Vaudevillians”? For starters it is not the straight murder mystery play; far from it! When you take into account the suspects – Siamese Striplets, Albert Frog or Ray the Blade – you realise that this musical theatre production is going to be unlike any other show in the capital. So there will be plenty of people in London that will be hoping to get hold of Theatre Tickets with haste.
The Vaudevillians appears at Charing Cross Theatre after the current production, “The Exonerated” ends its run on Saturday 9th April 2011. It runs from Tuesday 19th April 2011 to Saturday 14th May 2011.
