This is a hell (and heaven!) of a night out!

Drag artist/activist Shay Shay’s latest immersive, all singing all dancing, dining show at the iconic Vaults Theatre does not disappoint.
Based on L. J. Baum’s famous film, this entertaining production reveals what is happening in the magical world of Oz in 2022. It’s a fast paced, quick witted and fabulously camp show that cleverly redefines the boundaries of gender and identity.
The actual dining experience was extraordinary. With veg or meat options, the food is great, served on long trestle tables, with stages on either side and in between. The audience was right in the heart of the show.
I loved the choreography (Shay Shay…of course!) and atmospheric lighting (Clancy Flynn). There were great performances from all the cast, but a special mention goes to immensely talented newcomer Feyi Wey as the Wicked Witch and Fizz Sinclair’s sexy, sinuous Tin.
Highly recommended for date nights, parties and fun nights out.
