Over the past few months, the stage of Riverside Studios has come alive with the sound of rock music, namely the story-driving, tension-building, adrenaline-inducing tracks that we’ve heard on screen in Quentin Tarantino’s most iconic films. Tarantino Live, an action-packed rock musical, is twisting and hip-shaking it way into the hearts of London audiences, delivering spectacular vocal performances, gripping stories and even a spot of sword-slicing choreography – plus, an eensy bit of blood splatter and dismemberment (this is Tarantino after all).
Whether you’re a fan of the Oscar-winning director and writer, can’t resist a bit of live rock and roll, or are simply on the hunt for an unforgettable night out, (or all of the above) this sensational show is just the ticket. But you don’t have all the time in the world, the show is ending its run on July 30 so there are only a couple of weeks left to experience the wildly fun musical for yourself. Grab your tickets today before it’s too late!
Tarantino is no stranger to the power of a good soundtrack. Any fan can conjure up the image of the Reservoir Dogs’ slo-mo stroll when the catchy introductory bass line of George Baker’s ‘Little Green Bag’ spills from the speakers, while Chuck Berry’s ‘You Never Can Tell’ immediately makes you think of Uma Thurman and John Travolta’s famous dance scene in Pulp Fiction. So of course, Off The Record had to make a Tarantino rock musical with all those classic tunes and scenes to work with.
This musical doesn’t hold back, bringing the Tarantino Cinematic Universe to the stage with an epic story of the Fox Force Five (a lethal group of femme fatales from his films) taking on the Tyranny of Evil Men. The talented actors and live orchestra breathe new, musical, life into their roles, belting out ballads and performing cult hits while ferocious battles and sword fights erupt on stage. All your favourite Tarantino films have been woven together to create this spectacular story, so you can expect to experience the likes of Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Jackie Brown, Django Unchained, Inglorious Basterds and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, in a whole new theatrical light.
Tarantino Live has already proved a big hit in LA; with Tarantino himself even swinging by to catch a show, and now it is London’s turn to experience the rock musical. The two-hour concert experience makes for a perfect night out, where you can sit back, sip drinks and watch Broadway and blockbuster films collide in one sensational show. Make sure to snap up tickets before they disappear faster than a fateful slice of The Bride’s blade.
