Margaret Thatcher has turned up in the West End – and is livelier then ever, more alive now then when she was alive!
Matt Tedford is simply as fantastic and hilarious as The Iron Lady in ‘Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho.’ Tedford took over London’s Garrick Theatre for two nights last week to a full stalls section! Tedford had the audience in stitches with his take on The Lady’s Argentina debacle, as well as lots of jokes about Section 28, plu all the other crap she put the country through. She is assisted by two very energetic and extreme multitaskers (the very sexy Sam Donnelly and Danny Stokes.) who helped to make the show the campiest, and funniest, in the West End!
There are ‘special appearances’ by ‘Ian McKellen and his sword,’ and also from Winston Churchill’s head who literally brought the house down with one joke after another – you had to see it to believe it – very hilarious and memorable!
You’ve missed your chance to see this show in London, and it also played to packed houses earlier this month at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival, but follow the show on Facebook (Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho) for future performances.
Created by double Olivier Awards winner Jon Brittain and Matt Tedford.
