Lonely Planet review

This stalwart pub-theatre in the heart of the Islington party district has in the past staged some of the most memorable theatre in North London. Nowadays it’s a bit hit or miss, with tribute mini-musicals to the likes of Dorothy Fields (she wrote songs like ‘I’m In The Mood For Love’ and ‘If My Friends Could See Me Now’) and Sophie Tucker and provocative cabaret like Naked Boys Singing! (yes, for real). It might not be fun for the whole family, but you might like it.
