One good turn deserves another and in the case of The Spiegeltent that certainly rings true.
And the funky little cabaret/comedy fest will return to Civic Park next year, bringing an encore production of the hugely successful 2018 show Blanc de Blanc for another bawdy season.
Most recently in town from May to June, The Spiegeltent gave us a massive line-up of entertainment including the sold-out cabaret show Deluxe Deluxe and a raft of top-level comedians such as Wil Anderson, Dave Hughes, Matt Okine and Joel Creasey.
“Novocastrians have shown us that they are ready and willing for the escapist
Spiegeltent,” Scott Maidment, founding director of production company Strutt & Fret said.
“We can’t wait to introduce our latest circus-cabaret corruption, Blanc de Blanc Encore, which dives back into the Blanc de Blanc world that Newcastle gulped back with enthusiasm in 2018”.
Speaking of which, Blanc de Blanc Encore resurrects the champagne-soaked bacchanal of the original, inviting the audience to pop a bottle and indulge their senses in a hedonistic swirl of live jazz, thrilling circus tricks, side-splitting risqué comedy and death-defying acrobatics.
Here’s a snippet of what we had to say about the Blanc De Blanc opening night back in 2018.
“Blanc de Blanc is a bubbly rollercoaster of naughtiness, champagne, comedy and breathtaking acrobatic talent. It’s probably the most risqué show we’ve ever seen in Newcastle, and you’d be mad to miss it.
Throughout the opening night, we were reminded once again why The Spiegeltent, that’s taken up residence in Civic Park for the next three weeks, is one of the best performance spaces you’ll ever see live entertainment in. It’s a real shared experience, and being there inside the tent is really half the allure. You feel like you’re a part of the show… and sometimes you are.“
So if this run is anything like the first, Blanc de Blanc Encore promises to be a show not to be missed.
But wait! There’s more. The full Spiegeltent festival program of world-class comedians, musicians will be announced later this year.
Blanc de Blanc Encore is on at Spiegeltent Newcastle from 26 March to 19 April 2020.
