Those deliciously dirty denizens of the demi-monde the Boom Boom Club are pulling out all the stops for this immersive cabaret-theatre spectacular, which they suggest you think of as 'Davy Jones's lock-in'. 'The Tempest' never looked like this: Jonny Woo holds court in iambic splendour as Prospero, attended by an aerial Ariel (Katherine Arnold) overseeing a ragtag band of characters from dreams and stories telling their tales – depending on the night, you might see new guises from Phil Kay, Nina Conti, Sarah-Louise Young, Up & Over It, EastEnd Cabaret, Lucky Franco, Kitty Bang Bang, Lady Carol, So & So Circus, Frisky and some extra special guests too. Dusty Limits directs (but, we're told, doesn't appear). With sea wenches, Titanic victims, live rock 'n' roll backing, crazy circus skills, bonkers comedy, nautical games and an afterparty into the wee hours (Thur/Fri/Sat), this sounds like the stuff of legends. Get wet and love it. Co-produced by Time Out Live and Underbelly.
