Leicester Square Theatre (Main House) - July 2013
LEICESTER Square Theatre has announced its Main House programme for Juy 2013 and it includes:
Miss Nightingale – The Burlesque Musical by Matthew Bugg – Tuesday, July 2 to Sunday, July 7. Tickets: £25, £23 concessions.
Northern lass Maggie Brown has moved to London in search of fame. She auditions at every cabaret bar, with her songwriter George, but nobody wants their act. Things aren’t much better with her boyfriend Tom. And her brother Harry’s missing in action.
Everything changes when Maggie and George are picked up by the charming nightclub owner Sir Frank. Soon ‘Miss Nightingale’ explodes onto the stage – shocking society with her outrageous outfits and saucy songs. She takes the West End by storm.
But off the stage, sexual tension between the two men reveals secrets more dangerous than the Blitz and threatens to destroy everything.
The cast includes Tomm Coles, Ilan Goodman, Amber Topaz, Alex Tomkins and Adam Langstaff.
Luke Jermay: Sixth Sense – Monday, July 8 to Saturday, July 13 at 7.30pm. Tickets: £18, £16.

Theatre series Tales Told in Romanian continues with a production of Enigma Variations by Éric Emmanuel Schmitt, starring Mircea Diaconu and Alexandru Repan (Festen on tour from Bucharest at the Barbican). This production will be performed entirely in the Romanian language without English surtitles.
Reduced Shakespeare Company in The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) (revised) – Tuesday, July 16 to Sunday, August 11. Tickets: £27.50, £25, £20, concessions available.
All 37 plays in 97 minutes, this is an irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, now revised for 2013 but with the same recycled jokes – just put in a different order. Audiences are invited to join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.
Written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield, the production is directed by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor.
Hotel S.A.L.I.G.I.A – Thursday, July 25 at 3pm and 7.30pm. Tickets: £17.50, £15.
After a terrible accident, a young man finds himself amongst the guests of the Hotel S.A.L.I.G.I.A. and quickly realises that this is no ordinary hotel. The motley selection of guests all have one thing in common: everyone has committed a mortal sin and now awaits their final destination.
Described as an exciting, comedic yet thought-provoking new musical, it features an original script by Elaine Gray and original lyrics and score by Phillip Short.
The Amazing Bubbleman – Saturday, July 27 at 2pm. Tickets: Adult £11, Child £8, Family £30.
