Get Aladdin -an adult pantomime at Landor Theatre
Peter Bull for Above the Stage Theatre (ATS) presents Get Aladdin, an adult Pantomime by Jon Bradfield and Martin Hooper, at the Landor Theatre, a fringe venue in Clapham, south London, from 7 Dec 2012 to 6 Jan 2013.
Directed by Andrew Beckett, designed by David Shields, lighting by Richard Lambert.
Street-thief Aladdin and his widowed (‘single but experienced’) mum flee their Chinese laundry in Clapham and stow away to the ancient, badly-researched Chinese province of Hao Hung, after they stumble upon a dangerous magic lamp. Pursued by the evil Abanazer and a hapless Scotland Yard detective on secondment from G4S they find themselves embroiled in a battle of love and wits with the Emperor, his gay hot-geek son, and a lascivious genie (you’ve got to rub her the right way).
