Experience London’s Alternative Drag scene this Christmas

In partnership with Soho Theatre.

2021-12-10

If, like us, you've spent one too many years shivering in Hyde Park wondering if an £8 cup of lukewarm mulled wine is worth it, and you’re looking for some first-class drag-tivities this festive season - look no further than Soho Theatre.

On the bill at 21 Dean Street this month are not one but two drag shows for your viewing pleasure. Bring your friends, bring your nan, and prepare yourself for the most outrageously camp night out that London has to offer.

Le Gateau Chocolat & Jonny Woo: Now That’s What We Call MusicalsMonday 13 December 2021 - Satuday 22 January 2022

Dubbed the “Ebony and Ivory of drag”, Olivier award-winning star of La Clique and La Soiree, Le Gateau Chocolat, and the Queen of London’s Alternative Drag scene, Jonny Woo, are coming to town this Christmas to take you on a journey through a catalogue of their favourite musical hits.

From Gypsy to Grease, Little Mermaid to The Sound of Music – no musical is safe.

Le Gateau Chocolat & Jonny Woo: Now That’s What We Call Musicals is a melting pot of musical theatre karaoke, vaudeville, variety, sing-along, dress-up madness, and signature assholery. Basically, everything you’ve ever wanted for Christmas!

"These two aren’t just any old drag queens; they’re superstars… An evening of hilarity, campness, and exuberant joy." ***** - Broadway World

"Expect Les Mis in three minutes, take-offs of hair and wicked and mucho, mucho fun!" - Time Out

The Dina Martina Christmas ShowTuesday 14 – Thursday 30 December 2021

Yet another reason why the holiday season will be extra special this year - as the beloved comic genius Dina Martina will blanket London in yuletide merriment with her famed holiday train wreck of a show.

Martina (a.k.a. ‘The Second Lady of Entertainment’) started the tradition at Seattle’s Re-bar over twenty years ago, and now The Dina Martina Christmas Show is coming to Soho Theatre.

Expect a truly wondrous mix of questionable songs, unnecessary dance, overburdened costumes, and side-splitting videos to create your newest treasured holiday tradition.
