Average rating score for this production:


“Beautiful. Funny. Impossible. La Soirée's triumph is that there's not a single moment when one, two or all three of those terms don't apply. In that, as in every other regard, it's identical to La Clique, the award-winning cult circus-cabaret event." - The Guardian
“Mixing good humour and glamour with a thrilling frisson of danger, La Soirée offers a wonderfully warm and welcoming refuge from the cold, scary world outside.” - The Telegraph
“There's a huge amount of skill on show, especially from the English Gentlemen, an Aussie duet in suits who perform daring feats of power balancing and acrobatics; the Montreal puppeteers, Cabaret Decadanse, who manipulate their divas as a classic expression of self-fulfilment; and a hula-hooping Betty Boop on skates who can sashay on the spot with several dozen illuminated hoops rattling-a-go-go like an animated ball gown skeleton.” - The Independent
“La Soirée, housed in a luxuriant mirrored, wooden, South Bank big top bedecked with crystal and leadlight, is the perfect offering for the forthcoming festive season. The audience is out to have a good time, and a good time is what the likes of sword-swallowing Miss Behave and multi-hula-hooping Marawa provide.” - The Evening Standard
“There isn't a happier yet weirder show in town and it's designed merely to showcase the extraordinary but to do so extraordinarily." - Daily Express
