The cabaret cast of La Clique returned to London's South Bank last night, opening their new show La Soiree in the Magic Mirrors big top, just behind the National Theatre.

Many of the line up from the show's previous appearances at London's Hippodrome and Roundhouse's appear including Scandinavian contortionist Captain Frodo, "Bath Boy" David O'Mer, strongmen duo The English Gents and hostess Miss Behave.

The show opened last night 21 October (previews from 12 October) and the show continues its limited run until 30 January 2011.

La Clique made its London debut at the London Hippodrome on 10 October 2008 (previews from 2 October), initially due to run for just four months and eventually extending until 27 June 2009, when it closed ahead of the venue's redevelopment as a casino complex. That same year, it won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Entertainment, and in November 2009, it moved to the Roundhouse for a nine-week Christmas season.

The new show, La Soiree features a number of artists from the previous incarnation and is presented in London by Brett Haylock, Mark Rubinstein and Mick Perrin for Just for Laughs Live.
