Alex Proud, Proud CEO remarks – ‘I am thrilled to bring a brand-new immersive experience to the West End. This will be more than a stage show, guests will truly be part of the cast from the moment they enter the venue. From picking their gang, to joining dance battles, the audience will help to tell our version of the story as it unfolds on stage. We can’t wait to blow London away with this new concept!

An evening of pure indulgence and escapism will unfold. Experience exquisite fine dining with a sumptuous three-course menu, exclusively designed and made in Proud’s kitchen using only the freshest produce. Indulge in decadent cocktails carefully curated by in-house mixologists and paired with first-class service.

Guests will choose their side of the feud, as the cast falls into two cliques of spectacular performers including, world-famous illusionist and master of fire, Shade Flamewater. Darlings of the Moulin Rouge J’Adore La Vie will bring their haute couture burlesque to the scuffle and the infamous burlesque show ghoul, horror diva and Brazilian bombshell Marie Devilreux is set to astonish.

Husband partners, Duo Little Finch will leave audiences stunned with their mind-blowing hand balance acts, international burlesque sensation Jake Dupree will set hearts racing, and multi-talented Emily Winters will be showcasing her dare-devil hair hang act whilst playing classical violin – A sight that must be seen to believed!
