Adam and Eve & Steve The Musical

If you read my blog regularly then you’ll know I’m a massive theatre fan. Especially musicals.

I love all the big, popular shows and have been lucky enough to see quite a few of them, but I’m always interested in new shows too.

This brand new Musical coming to London next month looks brilliant!

Adam and Eve & Steve musical theatre

 

Flying Entertainment with AES in association with The King’s Head presents:

‘Adam & Eve….and Steve’ makes its London debut at the Kings Head, Islington from 21st March for a 5 week run.  This toe-tapping, warm-hearted new musical delivers laugh-out-loud moments in abundance and turns the age-old story of The Garden of Eden completely on its head.  The show is set to delight audiences and critics alike after a hugely successful Edinburgh Fringe Festival run last August.

God’s plan to create Adam and Eve goes deliciously wrong when the mischievous Beelzebub interferes, and God creates Steve instead of Eve. Adam is delighted with Steve (who thinks he is a woman called St. Eve) and all is harmonious until the two new BFFs are confronted by Eve herself.  A ménage a trois for the modern era ensues, and the future of humankind hangs in the balance as everyman Adam, loveable OTT Steve and jealous Eve try to sort out their tangled emotions….’

This doesn’t look like my usual kind of musical that I see, but I will definitely be making the effort to grab a friend and have some laughs at this acclaimed comedy musical!

It sounds really good! Following a sold out run at Edinburgh Fringe in 2016, this ‘fresh and funny farce is sinfully tongue in cheek and wickedly heart-warming.’

Here are some reviews from the Edinburgh Festival:

“This is not just good – it’s GREAT! From the get-go, the show is slick, brilliantly cast and the performance of each and every individual is perfection.

MUSICAL THEATRE REVIEW *****

“It’s exactly the sort of silly, camp fun that one could hope for and a great time to be had, no matter your persuasions.”

BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE ****

“Adam & Eve and Steve is absolutely a show to see, not only as a piece of satisfying entertainment but also for its ability to challenge both socially and theatrically.
 Excellently cast, musically sound and very well performed.”

BROADWAY BABY ****

 “This is a wonderful show with real heart, comedy and great musical accompaniment, one of the most enjoyable shows of the Fringe”
