Grindr: the Opera! - Above the Stag - ★★★★★ - Until February 16, 2019


Just the title made us laugh. A crazy idea which is so much fun on stage and completely captures the Grindr experience while thoughtfully commenting on how the dating app changes the way people interact and can threaten intimacy. The music is very clever, parodying songs from Gilbert and Sullivan to the childhood favourite, "Going on a Bear Hunt." The singing was terrific, with particular accolades for Christian Lunn, the Spirit of Grindr. This musical is the epitome of the affordable theatre quality that exists outside the West End.
