The Circus of Horrors

The Lyric Theatre in London’s West End adds The Circus Of Horrors to its line-up of shows, which continues to include the ongoing production of Michael Jackson musical Thriller Live. The former is the fantastic circus extravaganza that celebrates the macabre and is certainly not suitable for children as it contains nudity and language, plus themes that are certain to incite nightmares. Directed by the show’s undead ringmaster Dr Haze, it has become a global sensation since it first emerged in the mid-1990s and this new production in the West End in 2013 – called London After Midnight - should prove to be its best incarnation yet!

The Circus Of Horrors has everything one would need for a great night out, including spectacular stunts and acts held together by a story involving murders at well known London landmarks, each of which more gruesome than the last, and the action takes place back in the 17th century. There are sword swallowers and balancers, a demon dwarf, a contortionist and a hair hanger, among others, with performers that include Hannibal Hellmurto, Daniel Balckblackner and The Mighty Michaela, to name but a few. It is clear that this is not a show that audiences with theatre tickets will forget easily.

Over the years The Circus Of Horrors attracted new fans and evolved into various editions, often focusing on particular themes, such as the Aztec-themed production that went under the title of Day of the Dead, and it comes to the West End under the title London After Midnight. Even if you have already witnessed the likes of the Cirque Du Soleil or La Clique, this is likely to be something truly different as it focuses on the nightmarish side of spectacle. They first emerged in the mid-1990s at the Glastonbury Festival and over the years they have attracted many fans, some of whom will have followed them thanks to their successful appearances on Britain’s Got Talent.

So if you are looking for a truly spectacular night out that you will not forget in a hurry then this could be the show for you. The Circus Of Horrors: London After Midnight runs at the Lyric Theatre from Monday 28th October 2013.
