Written by Mart Crowley and first perfromed in 1968, this show recently had a sell-out run at London's Park Theatre where it got a number of 4 star ratings from the critics - here's a selection ...

The Guardian - 3 stars

Telegraph - 4 stars

Time Out - 3 stars

The Independent - 4 stars

If you didn't see it at the Park, you now have another chance to see the show at the Vaudeville Theatre.

It's only going to be playing there for a very limited run from 7 to 18 February 2017.

So, if you want to catch it then, you'd better get your skates on and book tickets right away as demand is likely to be very high.

We have tickets from just £26.

Here's some more information ...


There’s a party tonight.

Nine men gather in a New York apartment for a birthday celebration.

Harold (Mark Gatiss), a self-avowed ‘pock-marked, Jew fairy’, receives a surprise gift: a beautiful male hustler, and party host Michael (Ian Hallard) gets an unwanted surprise of his own in the shape of a figure from his past.

As the booze is drunk and the dope smoked, the mood swings from hilarity to heart-break.
