CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled.

Joan Rivers: A Work in Progress By a Life in Progress is a four-handed, part-confession, part-performance comedy drama based on Joan's own larger-than-life rollercoaster life. While it hilariously presents the Joan that we know, from her biographies, TV appearance and live stand-up shows, it also, quite movingly, reveals the woman behind the public face that the public have never seen before. It's fierce, funny and unforgettable... Set in Joan's dressing room backstage at the Oscars ceremony, Joan is preparing for one of her legendary annual TV catwalk commentaries on the fashion hits and disasters at Hollywood's biggest night of the year. But all is not well... her dressing room is B, not A!!; her complimentary cheese is puny, not plentiful; and her producer is the bigwig's nephew, not the bigwig! The tension and drama are the catalyst for an introspective look at aging, going through life's ups and downs and being a woman in Hollywood. After Joan's five amazing decades in showbusiness, the topics fly by - some familiar, some not. The famous breakup with Johnny Carson is there, her husband's suicide, the feuds and firings, several backstabbings, sidesteps and full frontal calamities. You may think you've heard it all before, but you'd be wrong...

Performers Joan Rivers, Emily Kosloski, Carrie Paff, Mark Philips, Melissa Rivers (on camera), Dorie Barton (on camera), Leo Marks (on camera).
