La Soirée have been performing to audiences across the globe for years, but this time around they're doing something extra special – an official opening in a West End venue. The cabaret troupe, composed of a variety of acts and performers who appear in succession every night, gave us an exclusive look backstage as they prepare to open the show, as well as the preparations for their technical rehearsal.
In a first for the venue, the show will adapt the theatre auditorium and place the stage in-the-round.
