Have you ever watched a Tarantino film and thought; you know what’s missing? A spectacular song and dance number. Well, your musical-loving prayers have been answered with Tarantino Live, coming to London on June 6. A rock musical with a bit less of the blood splatter, a dash of the monologuing chatter, and plenty of lyrical swagger, this show will have your toes tapping and hips shimmying along to rock’n’roll renditions of scores from the Tarantino Cinematic Universe. All your favourite scenes from his films will make an appearance, from the samurai-sword-slicing fights of Kill Bill to the classic twist dance from Pulp Fiction, so you can be sure you’ll be in for a wild ride.
The musical story will follow the Fox Force Five, made up of – funnily enough – five of his most iconic female characters, as they take on the Tyranny of Evil Men. You’ll be sucked into a warped version of Tarantino’s films, where a lingering beat of silence can explode into a Broadway-style musical number and a live orchestra provides a gripping soundtrack to dramatic dialogue and epic battles. Let’s just say this isn’t your typical prancing through meadows, floating away on an umbrella kinda musical.
Tarantino Live has already lit up the stage in Los Angeles, earning a wealth of rave reviews from the likes of Deadline, Vice and Entertainment Weekly who have praised the performances and thrilling visuals. Now, the show is taking flight from The City Of Angels and landing in the Big Smoke to treat London’s Tarantino fans to an unforgettable night that injects a new kind of melody and theatrical pizazz into his films. You’ll be able to experience the likes of Inglourious Basterds, Death Proof, Kill Bill, Django Unchained, Jackie Brown and Reservoir Dogs like you’ve never seen them before, as they are blended together to become one sensational rock musical.
It’s not just the familiar scenes that will ring a bell. The songs are all well-known hits that have been plucked straight from the films. You can expect to see the suited Reservoir Dogs performing ‘Hooked On A Feeling’ by Blue Swede, a blunt-bobbed Mia belting out Dusty Springfield’s ‘Son of a Preacher Man’ and characters from Django Unchained putting on a powerful performance of ‘Freedom’ by Anthony Hamilton and Elayna Boynton. Whether you’re a Tarantino fan, a musical fan, or simply a fan of a good night out, Tarantino Live should be on your list this summer. Grab tickets now to be sure you’re among the first to experience the spectacular show.
