First Call, Last Call

TO DELIGHT, surprise and amaze audiences, the internationally acclaimed Leandre Ribera comes to London this spring with his show Clown? Cabaret? Silent Movie? With his ability to breathe magic into the mundane, the Spanish clown's energetic imagination has sparked comparisons with many of the great mime actors from Charlie Chaplin to Slava Polunin. After Leandre Lunatic and the present show sold out last year in Edinburgh and London respectively, you'd be advised to book quickly to see this brief weekend run.
