Divine goes to the Panto!

Evelyn Greedly tucks into Divine before making mischief in Jack and the Beanstalk

Divine supported the first night of  Christmas panto  ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ at the Lyric Hammersmith – and Sophi and I went along with our families to watch the show.  The familiar story of a poor boy whose poverty and desperation is exploited by a wicked schemer who gives him a poor price for his most valuable asset….. had a strange resonance for us!

It was a great show – with the very special innovation that the real star of the cast was the cow  – being played by a Spanish bull in drag!  Some great performances, lots of in-jokes about Hammersmith, singing and dancing, plus plenty of hissing and booing and ‘he’s behind you!’ to satisfy an audience of all ages. 

Jack would have traded his cow for a few Divine bars!

Also great to see the Lyric going ahead with its ambitious expansion plans to enable it to offer a full range of services and courses to the local community.
