I suspect I saw the best (London) play this year in February
mini me + poo
.. but in the past week I've seen what will surely end up as 'silliest' and 'best musical'.

Spyski is Peepolykus being very, very silly as usual, this time with a spy story interfering with a production of The Importance of Being Ernest. The Times' review is spot on - not all of it works, but what does is fab. Two throw-away highlights for me are what they do with the gun after an accident and the train sound effects.

Eurobeat is a better Eurovision Song Contest than the original will ever be. Amazingly, I can't spot a reference to seeing it in any of the LJs of people I know love Eurovision. If that's you, or you just like pop spoofs, you need to see this. Sit down about ten minutes early to see the 'instructions'. If you have seen it - who won? My favourite (the 'Polish' entry with men singing about coming together and miming fisting) was narrowly beaten by the Russians. Voting tip: listen to the cheers for the various countries at the start, then - unless you want to vote for it - pick the one with fewest other people 'from' there to maximise the effect of your vote.

Both close on the 1st November. Spyski is available for £12.50 via lastminute.com, while Eurobeat is always available at the half-price booth in Leicester Square. In fact, given that there was no-one in the upper two levels for Eurobeat last night, I suspect anyone with a ticket there gets moved to the stalls, so if the theatre is selling those tickets, that may be even cheaper.

I've seen Eurobeat twice. :) I think I did mention it somewhere. It is great!

Off to Spyski next week. I've kept wondering how Eurobeat was but no one was seeing it that I knew of. (I lied, Booklectic did, but she didn't say too much about it.)

Did you see the show I posted about I'm off to see in December?

Erm, remind me which one that is?

Last night's post, BAC, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.

I so want to see Eurobeat, thanks for the reminder!
