Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
TWELVE years after making headlines with David Blunkett the Musical, the same London producers are bringing Trump – The Panto! to Leicester Square Theatre. A world premiere production, it will run from Tuesday, December 12 to Saturday, December 30, 2017.
Written and directed by Stuart Saint, Trump – The Panto! is, according to press material, based on “a true story of alternative facts”.
Producer Martin Witts said: “For the past six years we have produced London‘s No1 adult pantomime, with the highly successful Dick! and Sleeping Booty reinventing the format, smashing box office records and getting 5-star rave reviews including from The Daily Mail. Others have since followed us and now London’s festive line-up is crowded with similar shows.
“So for 2017 we have decided to go in an exciting new direction and send up the biggest politician on the planet – President Trump. Trump the Panto is a festive filthy frolic with a new and scintillating, satirical twist.”
Taking its cue from everything from The Wizard of Oz to Into the Woods, Trump – The Panto! will feature a large cast of familiar fairytale characters, branded as outsiders and who are driven out of the magical woods overrun by global political overlords.
