Legendary post-punk pioneers The Tiger Lillies return for their first London run in over two years with a new show celebrating Soho. Martyn Jacques, the lead singer and founder of the band spent most of his twenties in a flat above a brothel, peeping through his window at the buzz of Soho’s lowlife, and he has been writing about whores, gangsters and freaks his entire 22 year career. In this show The Tiger Lillies unveil a whole host of future classics alongside some of their earliest material.

Their music is a mixture of pre-war Berlin cabaret, anarchic opera and gypsy music, echoing the voices of Bertolt Brecht and Jacques Brel. The Tiger Lillies shock, amuse and entertain in a postmodern vaudeville way, with their inimitable in-yer-face shows, where no limit should be taken for granted.

This delicious dark cabaret is Kurt Weill as scripted by Aleister Crowley, and the execution is impeccable throughout. Phenomenal.’ Guardian

'A journey into wild emotion which passes through melodrama and into bizarre beauty'
