Review: Queen of Roses
Entertaining and mesmerising.
Amidst the regal halls of The Bloomsbury Ballroom, the London Cabaret Club has once again mesmerised audiences with its new production, Queen of Roses. This contemporary cabaret experience delivers a rich and mighty entertaining tapestry of British heritage, paying homage to the formidable reigns of Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth II through a unique blend of live performances and sumptuous dining.
Queen Elizabeth I’s grand entrance, bedecked in lavish regalia and bespoke costumes, sets the stage for a night of spectacle and wonder. The evening unfolds with a captivating homage to William Shakespeare’s timeless tale of love and rivalry.
The transition to the Victorian era is elegantly executed through a stately waltz, immersing the audience in the opulence and refinement of the time. The true magic of Queen of Roses lies in its ability to embrace the essence of British culture, as Irish dancers and Scottish drummers dazzle with a harmonious celebration of the nation’s diverse traditions.
As the cabaret seamlessly moves through history, the post-WW2 London street party scene bursts to life, vividly capturing the jubilant spirit of victory and resilience. The performances reach their crescendo with a mesmerizing tribute to Queen Elizabeth II.
While the enthralling performances take center stage, the culinary delights served throughout the evening further elevate the experience. The carefully curated menu showcases classic British starters and mains.
Beyond the main event, The London Cabaret Club leaves no detail unattended, providing pre and post-show entertainment in the revamped Rose Bar. Illusionists, singers, magicians, and living garden statues transport guests into the whimsical realm of the royal court, adding an extra layer of enchantment to the evening. As the night progresses, late-night DJs take the stage, encouraging guests to dance the night away while sipping on bespoke British cocktails.
Celebrating its 10th year, The London Cabaret Club has found its true home within the splendid art deco setting of The Bloomsbury Ballroom. The combination of original choreography, unparalleled production, and relentless attention to detail ensures that each performance is an immersive and thrilling experience for all in attendance.
