Mulan Rouge Launches at The Vaults – Disney Meets Luhrmann in New Immersive Dining Experience
Looking for something different, or just want to inject some fun into these cold autumn evenings in London? Well, here is the mash-up performance you never knew you needed – an interactive show mixing cabaret, comedy and burlesque, based on Disney’s Mulan and Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of the Moulin Rouge.
The new Mulan Rouge show opens from the 15th of October and takes place at London Waterloo’s iconic The Vault Theatre on Leake Street. Written and directed by renowned activist and drag artist ShayShay, this brand new immersive experience has two ticket options – either general admission or dining tickets that include a four-course feast, served up alongside this drag-tactic parity of scandal, dancing and naughty delights.
The narrative, from drag artist, writer and director ShayShay, starts with rumours from distant lands: the Huns are preparing to attack. Mulan disguises themself as a man to join the war effort, but when their regiment commandeers the glittering Mulan Rouge as its training site, they find themselves surrounded by glitz, glamour and go-go girls. Come what may, Mulan’s true identity must be protected to defeat The Huns and defend the honour of the Mulan Rouge.
Extravagant and eccentric performances aside, the food and free-flowing cocktails are also fabulous, with catering from Flavourology (the team behind ginger line) featuring classic French cuisine fused with Asian flavours. There is also plenty on offer for vegetarians, including sticky soy and garlic tofu in lettuce wraps, baked Camembert with a ginger chilli sauce and freshly baked baguette, and braised lamb or butternut squash.
The show runs from 7-10pm and the dress code is “hot París night at the Mulan Rouge”. So, dress to impress, with all looks, from cabaret-glam to warrior-chic, welcomed for this fabulous night out.
General admission tickets range from £45 – £60
