Following successful runs Off-Broadway and in London, hailed by critics as “hilarious” and “ingeniously complex” with “jaw-dropping acrobatic choreography”, the updated Trompe L’Oeil triumphantly returns to London to share its vibrant and queer magic at The Other Palace Studio. T L'O masterfully pushes the limits of lyrical structure while fusing trompe l'oeil illusionary art, cabaret, queer theatre, and circus. An exceptional level of linguistic dexterity can be found in songs that are also anagrams, acrostics, or lipograms. The musical also draws inspiration from a variety of musical genres that are rich in illusion and allusion in order to challenge even the most discerning audience. T L'O offers a distinctly original fusion of politics, culture, and art that, in the words of one critic, "deserves to be booked out every night," with the inevitable cameos of a very campy Trump offering comic relief. Age recommendation 12+.
