First look rehearsal images have been released for the Off Broadway hit Trump L’Oeil – A Musical, which has its UK premiere in London next month.
Fresh from its New York run, this cheeky and challenging musical now comes to Upstairs at the Gatehouse for four weeks to explore the circus of the 45th president’s time in office.
Blending cabaret, queer theatre and circus, and with cleverly hidden messages throughout, this tongue-in-cheek musical directed by The Greenhouse’s Oli Savage presents a decidedly unique blend of art and politics through optical illusion…
Taking on the titular role is Vivek Sharma (Stranger Things – The Experience) – who portrays Trump as he is marched through a series of surrealist art landscapes, with life hilariously imitating art. Charlotte Barnes (Aladdin, Disney) plays Ivanka, and is joined by Alex Linscer (Aladdin, Manchester Opera House), Charlotte-Hannah Jones (Last Train to Christmas, Sky), Curtis Medley (Terry Pratchett’s Soul Music, Rose Theatre Kingston), Kyle Copeland (Dirty Dancing, Secret Cinema), Sarah Hughes (Cinderella, Theatre Royal Wakefield), Tish Weinman (Letitia Delish), Michael Mather (Mythic, Charing Cross Theatre) and Verity Power (Lady Parts, Channel 4).
