Strictly comes to Kingston


Not ‘strictly’ true, but last night I went to see Craig Revel Horwood’s production of Hot Mikado at The Rose theatre in Kingston Upon Thames.

This small theatre only opened last year, it’s design apparently based on the Rose theatre.

This production has given a modern feel to the original comic opera, or what I would call a bizarre plot with singing, & the songs include gospel & blues & an extremely raunchy version of ‘3 Little Maids’. The actors all sang, danced & played musical instruments which was most impressive. The costumes were a fascinatingly peculiar mix of suits, belts & ties.


What a cracking evening it was. Very enjoyable, toe tapping & funny & a really nice theatre that I have been meaning to go to for ages. Recommended.
