REVIEW: WHEN HARRY MET BARRY (Above The Stag Theatre) ★★★

When Harry met Barry has been around for a few years now: it first premiered in 2002, back in the day when the Above The Stag theatre really was above The Stag pub in Victoria. The show, now in it’s fourth incarnation, is currently playing at the Stag’s most recent home under the arches in […]


Southern Baptist Sissies is a story of growing up gay in bible belt America, where, to this day, being gay is still considered an illness to many people. Four young boys, Mark, Andrew, TJ and Benny, all attend the same Baptist Church but as the boys hit puberty, they start to realise they have un-christian […]

REVIEW: BITCHES AHOY! (Above The Stag) ★★★★

As always, a performance at Above the Stag did not disappoint. A follow-on from last year’s production of ‘Alright Bitches!’, this year’s delivery of nautical naughtiness is set on a cruise ship making its way round Europe – but what makes this particular boat special is the almost-exclusivity of gays aboard! Best friends Garth and […]

REVIEW: BEAUTY ON THE PISTE (Above The Stag) ★★★★★

The first thing I thought, upon leaving the Above the Stag Theatre after watching the self-proclaimed adult pantomime BEAUTY ON THE PISTE, was that this is not a production you should take your dear old mother to. Then I swiftly changed my mind. You should DEFINITELY take your dear old mother to it because she’d […]

REVIEW: PARTY (Above The Stag) ★★★★★

There is one word that springs to mind to describe the thrilling experience that was watching ‘Party’ – FAB-U-LOUS! It’s not often that a comedy is this effective in producing consistent laugh-out-loud reactions from an audience, but there was no shortage here. It was rather like watching a saucy version of ‘Friends’, except with seven […]

REVIEW: GET ‘EM OFF (Above The Stag) ★★★

Get ‘Em Off! is the latest offering from the UK’s only full-time LGBT Theatre, Above The Stag, in the heart of Vauxhall. A musical comedy which tells the story of the local Croydon gay bar, The Golden Canary. After bar owner Quinny announces he might have to shut up shop and sell, local punters decide […]


Glenn Chandler’s new musical THE SINS OF JACK SAUL has just opened at the UK’s only full time LGBT theatre, Above The Stag, telling the true story of Dublin Jack, the Victorian gay prostitute. Following on from last years success show FANNY AND STELLA (other Victorian prostitutes whom were rumoured to have relations with Jack […]


After a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014, “Torsten, The Beautiful Libertine” now plays at the Above The Stag Theatre. Between two seedy alleyways, this theatre is a little LGBT sanctuary. I’ve never experienced a warmer welcome than at this venue, which is why it is a shame that the story of the […]
