The Old Vic today announces further acts for the second of its Variety Nights which will take place on Sunday 6 March 2016. Poet and comedian Tim Key, the Echoes of Ellington Jazz Orchestra and winner of the Brass Category of BBC Young Musician of the Year 2014 Matilda Lloyd will join the previously announced line-up including world renowned magicians Jeff McBride and Eugene Burger, DJ and musician MckNasty and sensational all male vocal group, Only Men Aloud. The evening will once again be hosted by comedian Mark Watson.
Following the success of the first Variety Night in November 2015, the second of The Old Vic’s Variety Nights will take place on Sunday 6 March 2016. An integral part of Matthew Warchus’ vision for an eclectic inaugural season, the Old Vic Variety Nights embrace the theatre’s history and its roots in music, dance and vaudeville. The Variety Nights aim to reinvigorate a much cherished and nostalgic format with a contemporary twist, combining established names in music, magic and comedy with the very best of the current generation.
Artistic Director Matthew Warchus commented: ‘Following the enormous success of our debut event last November, I’m delighted to announce the next date in this hugely popular series of Old Vic Variety Nights. I’m very happy to say that comic genius Mark Watson will return as host to lead us, in his inimitable style, through a fun-filled evening of the best in Comedy, Music and Magic. We’re looking forward to another wonderful evening in this wonderful theatre.’
