A 1950s Broadway rampant musical comedy Out Of This World, featuring a score from Cole Porter, is now being performed at Ye Olde Rose and Crown theatre pub in Walthamstow.
The show, written by Dwight Taylor and Reginald Lawrence, focuses on Roman gods Mercury and Jupiter, who are in search of entertainment of the human kind. Their attention is on a young bride, Helen and her husband, Art. Mercury joins the couple on a trip to Athens, intending to put himself between the blushing newlyweds. While the gods are busy chasing Helen, the goddess Juno (Jupiter’s wife) is playing games of her own with inept gangster Nikki as her reluctant sidekick.
Out Of This World is directed by Randy Smartnik and is the second performance in the 2016 season from Rose and Crown’s in-house theatre company, All Star Productions. Their highly acclaimed previous show, The Kissing Dance, was nominated for seven Off West End awards.
Dates: 12-30 April, Tuesday – Saturday at 7.30pm, Sunday 3pm. No performance Mondays.
Ye Olde Rose and Crown, 55 Hoe St, London E17 4SA.
