Described by one critic as “Who Do You Think You Are? meets You’ve Been Framed “, this is a fond tribute to the lives of Sarah & Colin – comedian David Baddiel’s parents.
Billed as “a massively disrespectful celebration” of his late mother and his dementia-suffering father’s lives, Baddiel’s solo show My Family: Not The Sitcom transfers from the Menier Chocolate Factory to the Vaudeville Theatre for a limited run this September.
Digging beneath the surface, recalling their oddities, peculiarities and idiosyncrasies Baddiel celebrates his “wonderful” memories of his parents with an audience who are invited to come and be offended on his behalf.
My Family : Not the Sitcom promises to be both provocative and hilarious.
Please note that this show contains explicit language and is unsuitable for children under the age of 16 years.
Hotels close to the Vaudeville theatre & My Family : Not the Sitcom
The Vaudeville Theatre is just a few strides from the 3 star Strand Palace Hotel, one of Theatreland’s most favoured hotels. If four star is more your style then you can’t go far wrong with the Charing Cross turn right outside the theatre and it is on the other side of the road. Of course, if you don’t mind crossing the road then you are almost directly opposite the world-famous Savoy Hotel and just along the Strand to the left is the ultra trendy 5 star ME London hotel with its uniquely named rooms and its cool bars and restaurants.
Wander towards Holborn and the 4 star Kingsway Hall on Great Queen Street is a cut above the rest and one of Theatre Breaks favourite hotels.
If you don’t want to stay nearby you can catch the underground form nearby Covent Garden and Charing Cross tube stations. You can walk across the Thames where hotels, on the south side of the river, are a bit cheaper. Take a moment to enjoy the beautiful views up and down the Thames as you cross it – especially breathtaking when it’s all lit up at night!
