Why we can't wait for this brand new revue show
Stunning at The Windmill promises glamour, diversity and drag galore
Opening at the iconic Windmill International, for a strictly limited run on Sundays from 25 November until 16 December, this new Sunday night revue show will be the first in over 50 years.
Stunning takes inspiration from the biggest Parisian revues and Vegas shows to the darkest back street cabarets in Soho. With a nod to The Windmill's beginnings in 1930s, the show will be a stunning celebration of diversity and inclusion set in the glamour and sparkle of an iconic historical venue in the heart of the West End.
The Stunning cast of glamorous showgirls, glittering drag queens and captivating dancers will lead you on a journey that encapsulates the Golden age of the Windmill, popular drag culture and the future of London revue shows, with their original acts and special guest entertainment.
The Windmill has seen for some of the biggest names in British show business during its colourful 80-year history. Peter Sellers, Harry Seacombe, Tony Hancock and Bruce Forsyth all began their comedy careers at the venue when variety shows were a feature of the entertainment.
The gentlemen's club was immortalised in the 2005 movie Mrs Henderson Presents, starring Judi Dench and Bob Hoskins. The film told of how the Windmill theatre became the first nightspot in the capital to stage nude revues in 1932.
Stunning will take place at The Windmill International, Soho, every Sunday at 7pm 25 November – 16 December. Stay for the post show DJ, 9pm - 11pm. Tickets: designmynight.com
