Jack and the Beanstalk (Hackney Empire) London Reviews and Tickets
About the Show
Clive Rowe stars in a big-hearted panto about thrill-seeker Jack and an enchanted beanstalk.
When Jack trades the family cow for a handful of magic beans, little does he know he's about to embark on the adventure of his life. Follow Jack as he travels up the towering beanstalk and tries to outsmart a mighty giant. A magical stage adaptation of the well-loved fairytale starring Olivier Award-winner Clive Rowe (Disney's Live-Action 'Beauty and the Beast', 'Tracy Beaker'). A fun and highly interactive panto for all the family to enjoy.
Really, though, it’s just a lovely, joyful night out, defined by Rowe’s typically glorious turn as Dame Trot: powerhouse vocals, arch audience interactions and a never-ending stream of comedy frocks.
There may be the odd hiccup with jokes that don't quite hit the mark but to pick tiny holes feels almost shameful. This is an excellent production and a really fun night out for people of all ages.
