Vasiliki Aka Cheeky ##BEST##
With a new venue and a new emphasis, variety show Wonderville has returned to London this month following on from its debut season last year. Back then, the Palace Theatre outing was tagged "Magic and Illusion" whereas the new chapter sited in its own Piccadilly venue will be focusing on "Magic and Cabaret".Its director, Laura Corcoran, has been a fixture on the cabaret scene for over a decade as one half of Frisky & Mannish, award-winning purveyors of cheeky and ingenious mash-ups. As well as being a performer, she is also a director working with the likes of Black Cat Cabaret's current show Halcyon Nights (which we reviewed last week).We caught up with Laura to ask her about all things Wonderville.We're glad to see Wonderville return for a new season. For those who are new to the show, what can they expect to see this time around?We're bringing high-theatrical magic into the world of cabaret. It's a beautifully designed and very intimate space, where audiences are surrounded by the show and are closer than ever to the action. We're also mixing in even more variety from circus artists, sideshow and sensational musical acts to wow the audience in every possible way.
