Mario! The Musical
7.30pm 9 April, Stratford Circus
When Bowser decides that the whole “kidnapping the princess” thing isn’t working out and captures Mario instead, Peach and Luigi must break out of their traditional roles as damsel in distress and cowardly sidekick and take centre stage as heroes. Featuring original songs based on classic Nintendo tunes; more jokes and puns than you could shake a Wiimote at; Luigi rapping; unexpected romance and elaborate dance routines. What more could you ask for? Let’s-a go!
