★★★★★ “The evening triumphs… a barrel-load of offence-giving fun” – Telegraph
Witness the greatest cast ever assembled live on stage, as the world-famous Spitting Image puppets tread the boards of London’s theatreland for the first time ever in Idiots Assemble: Spitting Image The Musical.
Don’t miss this theatrical spectacle as all your favourite villains face off with Tiny Top Gun Tom and his band of rubbery heroes. There’s songs. There’s dancing. There’s absolutely no respect paid to anyone.
All this plus new topical material in the show as and when it arises. Which, let’s face it, with the current global situation will be most days…
It’s just like a West End musical but funnier and also doesn’t have Michael Ball in it.
Idiots Assemble: Spitting Image The Musical is running at the Phoenix Theatre until 26 August 2023.

Reviews of Idiots Assemble: Spitting Image The Musical★★★★ "Shockingly funny" - Evening Standard (Phoenix Theatre)
★★★★★ “The evening triumphs through technical slickness, loving attention to detail, a high gag-rate and character-count and a trenchant storyline… a barrel-load of offence-giving fun and a salty dash of rebellion.” - The Telegraph (Birmingham Rep)
★★★★ “A healthy disrespect for the Establishment… technically ingenious production… the smarts to crowbar in updated topical refernces” - Mail on Sunday (Birmingham Rep)
