went to see The League of Gentlemen live show at the Bristol Hippodrome last night – utterly fab. I don’t think they missed out any of the characters, and Hilary Briss in a spangled apron was a sight to behold. Very efficient stage crew who managed all the set and costume changes without a hitch, and the League themselves must have been exhausted by the end.
the first half is loosely – very loosely – based around Legs Akimbo organising a nativity play, and the second is a pantomime (hence the sparkly costumes).
I imagine it’s sold out everywhere, but if you’re a fan, and they’re anywhere near you, it’s well worth the ticket price
