Cult cabaret superstars Bourgeois & Maurice are back with a brand new spectacular show that puts the FUN back into our fundamentally pointless existence. The Soho Theater is delighted to announce a 21-night run of its brand new show Pleasure Seekers. Tickets are available now at www.sohotheatre.com.
After a few years locked in their spaceship, B&M are back on earth with a new mission: to devote their lives exclusively to pleasure. They abandon cynicism and instead adopt hedonism as their new religion. But like most religions, it gets very complicated very quickly. It turns out having fun takes a lot of hard work…
Pleasure Seekers dive straight into a Jacuzzi of joy as B&M party their way to ultimate bliss with the hilarious, wild wit and unique brand of pop satire that has made them one of the Kingdom’s most subversive and original musical groups. -United. Insane, this brand new show is an energetic tribute to hedonism in all its dirty and fabulous glory. With original music.
Bourgeois and Maurice said: “We are delighted to be back at the Soho Theater after a 5 year absence, and even happier that they have let us into their main house to let our wildest ambitions run free. ! Pleasure Seekers is a feast for the eyes and ears and it’s amazing to see it powered by a phenomenal creative team. We can’t wait to welcome humans to our pleasure palace – it’s going to be fun but trigger a warning: it’s getting pretty weird (sorry).
