Britney Spears The Cabaret - The Other Palace

The capital will be welcoming a show focused on pop superstar Britney Spears this September as The Other Palace briefly stages Britney Spears: The Cabaret.

However, whilst this might appear to be something akin to Thriller Live, the celebration of Michael Jackson at the Lyric Theatre, this is in fact a satirical look at the well known performer, with press material saying “Not so much a cabaret as a cry for help”. So expect a look at her ups and downs as we explore her life on the rise and in the spotlight.

The show originally appeared Down Under with Christie Whelan Browne playing Spears and she returns to play the part here in the United Kingdom, adding a London stage to her list of appearances following Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.

Whelan Browne has appeared in a range of shows in Australia both on the stage and the screen, first appearing in Britney Spears: The Cabaret in 2009 when it premiered at a Cabaret Festival in Adelaide. Her career has also included Australian versions of The Rocky Horror Show and 42nd Street, and she has taken on the roles of other real life people in Shane Warne: The Musical (as Liz Hurley) and Peter Allen: Not The Boy Next Door (as Olivia Newton John for television).

Britney Spears: The Cabaret will join a host of shows that have as their focus some of the biggest popstars of the last century when it comes to London. In addition to the mentioned Thriller Live the capital is also the home of Mamma Mia! (celebrating ABBA), Lady Day At Emerson’s Bar & Grill (honoring Billie Holiday) and Motown the Musical (which looks at a host of stars of Motown).

This show is directed by Dean Bryant, who also provides the script, and he comes to the capital with a host of Australian credits to his name and also West End work.

Britney Spears: The Cabaret begins performances at the Other Palace in London from Tuesday 5th September 2017 for a brief run until Saturday 9th September 2017.
