THEATRE IN THE CLOUDS AT SHANGRI-LA HOTEL: SELL-OUT SUCCESS
Exclusive private theatre service ‘Revels In Hand’ performs in one of Shangri-La's luxury suites.
Shangri-La Hotel has partnered with new private theatre service ‘Revels in Hand’ to offer a number of intimate plays to resident and non-resident guests of the hotel from 9th October 2018 through to 31st January 2019. Set in London’s highest luxury hotel suites, the exciting ‘Theatre In The Clouds’ experience is the world’s most exclusive form of theatrical escapism. It proved so popular it has completely sold out.
Revels In Hand is the brainchild of Melanie Fullbrook, Freddie Hutchins and Lucy Eaton - three actors who met at Cambridge University and are passionate about reviving the lost leisure of theatre done intimately. Harking back to the aristocratic nature of the arts, their bespoke theatre company will be performing plays in a luxury signature suite at Shangri-La Hotel that include a theatrical double bill by Noël Coward, to a loveable comedy by John Van Druten called Voice of the Turtle.
Seated less than a metre away from the stage, the audience is invited to enjoy each play from a rare personal distance, close enough to see the laughter lines on the cast’s faces. Such intimate gatherings were common in Shakespearean times when inviting actors to one’s home for a private performance was the thing to do; a pastime well-loved by the aristocracy and royalty. Revels in Hand updates the experience to create a brand-new luxury offering: theatre in its purest form.
The highest luxury suites in London set the stage for a night to remember. Complete with marble clad bathrooms and heated floors, the signature suites are some of the most spacious in the city. Interiors are sleek and sophisticated, blending marble, silk and light wood to create a refined and elegant atmosphere. The floor-to-ceiling windows showcase sweeping panoramic views of some of London’s most famous landmarks, from Big Ben and St. Paul’s Cathedral, to Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.
Tickets are priced in two tiers for the ‘Theatre In The Clouds’ experience. A ‘show only’ fee of £85 per person, and the show inclusive of an overnight stay in a beautiful room or suite starting from £685 based on two people sharing. Both ticket prices include two glasses of Champagne and a fine selection of canapés served by Shangri-La’s warm and welcoming team.
Revels in Hand is an off-shoot of established theatre company Go People. On a mission to bring joy to theatre lovers around the world, the highly commended Go People crafts theatre performances that are driven by the simple desire to entertain. Previous productions include Daisy Pulls it Off at Park Theatre starring Pauline McLynn and Shobna Gulati and A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Southwark Playhouse starring Freddie Fox and award-winning actress Maddy Hill. Revels in Hand brings the unique brand of Go People escapism into the most intimate of settings: whether in your home, your garden or your yacht, the bespoke theatre company offers West End quality specifically chosen to fit your individual space.
