On Wednesday evening I, amongst several other #LDNtheatrebloggers attended the ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ Digital Press Night at the Savoy Theatre. Hosted by the wonderful Richard Le Cocq, the evening gave bloggers and press the opportunity to not only review the show, but to learn a dirty, rotten dance routine on the Savoy stage with Associate Choreographer Darren Carnell AND the opportunity to ‘meet and greet’ the cast post-performance. Some might say we were spoiled ROTTEN.
Although I had good intentions, I found myself partnerless during the dance rehearsal and decided to turn my attention to capturing the other #LDNtheatrebloggers in action. Whilst some mastered rolling Robert Lindsay’s very own hat from their head to their toes, others were being thrown about by the strapping gents amongst us in an ‘Oklahoma?’ fashion (even the wonderful West End Wilma, who was a fantastic sport and managed to nab herself the dishiest dance partner available!). Witness Wilma and the other bloggers in action by watching my YouTube video below:
After a truly fantastic show, the meet and greet commenced. I managed to speak to Ian Knauer and congratulate him on a wonderful West End LIVE performance over the weekend (Ian filled in for Robert Lindsay as Lawrence on Saturday) and even have a chat and a photograph with Robert Lindsay himself!
I also got to meet Lizzy Connolly who plays Jolene in the show. Jolene is my favourite character and I haven’t been able to get ‘Oklahoma?’ out of my head since watching Lizzy perform it on Wednesday. She only confirmed what I could already tell from watching her in the role; she is having the best time as Jolene and absolutely loves her part in the show!
