Everyone knows the movie of The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, the musical made out of French Fondant Fancies, where kitsch meets psychedelia in a non-stoppa-singa-longa which leaves your retinas burning and where all the women trill like the mice out of Bagpuss. God knows what the drugs bill was on that one! Well, it’s coming to
London as a musical by Kneehigh, the nutcases who brought you the critically feted Brief Encounter, which was a hit of the smashiest kind in both London and New York.
Umbrellas is already being talked about as the event of the Spring (the Royal Wedding notwithstanding) and it is sure to be theatrical gold. Well,theatrical gold plate (nothing is more than skin deep in this French cult). So, why don’t we all go the same night and then we can sing our drinks orders at half time?
The Jakemob date for The Umbrellas of Cherbourg will be Saturday 5th March. Be there or miss out on what might well be the gayest night of the century so far.
