A bunch of talented guys performing sing-along classic hits. A pub. Singing and dancing at its best: The Choir of Man comes from the creative minds of Andrew Kay and Nic Doodson, and has been playing everywhere in the world, from Scotland to the USA and Australia over the past few years.
The show is set in a pub, called “The Jungle”, with a real working bar, and every member of the audience is offered a pint of beer. If you like to drink, this is already a good start.
After the alcohol and the introductions, the night starts and the talented and charming guys will have the whole audience singing along, dancing on their feet by the end of the show.
The Choir of man doesn’t pretend to have a narrative, so, don’t expect a story, but a few monologues and an eclectic choice of songs, from Adele’s “Hello” to “The Impossible dream”, from Sia’s “Chandelier” to the irresistible Pina Colada song and Ben Norris’ breath-taking version of Luther Vandross’ ‘Dance With My Father’: beautiful solos but also incredible harmonies, voices which blend perfectly.
The Choir of Man is billed as the ‘ultimate feel-good show’, but the truth is that is such a fun, heart-warming and hilarious show, and you will leave the theatre not feeling good, but great.
Give support to these guys. They deserve it.
The show stars: Tom Brandon as the Hard Man, Miles Anthony Daley as the Romantic, Matt Beveridge as the Joker, George Bray as the Maestro, Freddie Huddleston as the Handyman, Richard Lock as the Beast, Mark Loveday as the Barman, Ben Norris as the Poet and Tyler Orphé-Baker as the Pub Bore and it runs until 12 February 2022.
