Aliens Love Underpants Live on Stage – A Review

A few weeks ago I took the children to The Leicester Square Theatre in London to see the fabulous little kids show Aliens Love Underpants. We absolutely love the books so this Live stage adaptation was sure to be  sure fire hit with my three youngsters!

The Aliens Love Underpants original book is a very popular childrens tale whereby cute little Aliens visit Earth in search of.. you guessed it, underpants! It’s a gorgeously illustrated book with a crazy, silly rhyming story that’s an instant favourite with children and parents alike!

I haven’t been to the Leicester Square Theatre before although I do enjoy the theatre in all genres and have been to see many shows in the West End, so it was nice to get off the beaten track and step inside this small, intimate theatre to be enchanted by this colourful, mesmerising show!

Because the theatre is small, you feel instantly connected to what’s going on on the stage. The cast was made up of a few actors that took on different roles and also worked the Aliens which were puppets! The Aliens themselves were very colourful and larger than life.

The show was lovely. It wasn’t very long, about an hour in total with no interval and at no point did it drag or did the kids become restless. In fact, they LOVED it! They were hypnotised from the start. The story line moved forward at the right pace, there were lovely hypnotic song moments and it was a vision of colour and happiness!!

I would definitely recommend everyone go and see it if you can. There’s still lots of summer holiday time left to take advantage of as the show runs until 31st August! I’ve actually already sent a few of my friends along with their children and they absolutely loved it too!

We were lucky enough to be at the press event and join in with the celebrations afterwards where my daughter got to meet the cast and puppets on the stage!

Grainy image, but couldn’t resist this selfie with one of the celebs that were at this special performance… It’s Vincent from Strictly who was very happy to oblige and took this himself!

We had a great afternoon out. The show is fantastic!
