Saturday 2nd May - West End Musical Brunch: Live Stream! - London
While you can't go to the West End right now, you can drag the West End kicking, screaming and sonorously singing into your very own living room with its West End Musical Brunch event. Have fun with the biggest West End stars, watch live performances and enjoy interactive musical theatre-themed games to keep you on your toes. There's also a Q&A with the stars so you can finally ask those questions you've been dying to ask about your favourite shows. But be warned, this event will see the audience become the cast, so make sure you warm up those vocal cords and joints before the big day.
Blink and you may miss a high kick here or a stealthy slide there, but the magic of Cirque du Soleil has never failed to touch every heart in the audience. And let's face it, we're all a little in need of some magic at the moment. So leave the everyday behind and enjoy behind-the-scenes videos, 60-minute specials, virtual reality, activities for kids, CirqueFit workouts, Blue Man documentaries, make-up tutorials, and much more. By the time we're allowed out, the Soleil crew could have a new troupe member in you!
