20130425-074903 PM.jpgJohn Partridge has taken a week off from appearing in the hit west end show A Chorus Line to perform his own show at London’s swanky Hippodrome Casino cabaret venue.

The fabulously camp actor spent two hours taking the crowd through some well known songs from Dames and Dudes through time, even throwing in one of his own numbers ‘Tommy and Suzie’.

John dances like there is no tomorrow with well choreographed dance routines, assisted by his ‘ponies’ (back up dancers) and amazing backing vocals come from Strictly Come Dancing singer Imogen Tucker. Never in my life have I heard a singer use a megaphone on stage to actually complement the song! This is done very well a few times throughout the show to add a little extra something.

With friends and family cheering John on from the tables, it was lovely to see someone with so much support for what they do. The highlight of the night had to be a cover of Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ and David Bowie’s ‘Changes’ which ended the night perfectly.


John Partridge can be seen at the Hippodrome Casino until 27th April. Click here for more information and to book tickets.
