London's O2 Theatre Expands - ALADDIN: A WISH COME TRUE Premieres Dec. 7
According to reports, London's O2 is Arena is looking to expand to a full entertainment facility, rather than just offering only live music.
The first show this year will be ALADDIN: A WISH COME TRUE.
Lily Savage will dust down her theatrical muses and throw on the guise of Widow Twankey for a rare and unique stage appearance in a strictly limited season of Aladdin A Wish Come True at The Theatre at The O2.
From Friday 7 December 2012 until Saturday 5 January 2013 a truly unique and magical theatrical event will be taking place on the Greenwich Peninsula under the canopy of The O2. A purpose built 1900-seat theatre will host what Whatsonstage called "a classy panto" starring the inimitable Lily Savage as one of the greatest dames in pantomime, Widow Twankey.
Lily Savage, who will be performing by kind permission of Mr Paul O'Grady, had this to say: "Lily had such a great time playing Widow Twankey last time in Southampton that I am delighted she gets to have another go and that this will be in her very own, brand new purpose built theatre at The O2 - which will be filled with the magic of Old Peking!!"
The O2's have said they will even consider creating a permanent theatre to stage all genres.
