MOUTHING OFF THE ROYAL VAUXHALL TAVERN’S NEW NIGHT


WITH DAVID MILLS AND MYRA DUBOIS…


Mouthing Off was the name of a new promotion launched at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern in April. The theatrical love child of David Mills and Myra Dubois, it was billed as “a brand new panel show for the Twitter and Facebook generation”, although what that basically meant was a light-hearted, anarchic, anything-goes evening of cabaret, with guests for stage conversations and anecdotes, a little bit of song and dance, and plenty of barbed quips and pursed lips (particularly from Ms Dubois, who could seems to have turned the art of comically pursing one’s lips into an Olympic sport….!). The guests for the launch event were Clayton Littlewood (see ‘My London’ on page 6), who bounded on stage to talk about his new book,


Goodbye To Soho, and recount a few choice tales about his life. After an interval, he was followed by actor Frances Barber, who treated the audience to some gems from her time in the theatre and on screen (appearing in almost every long-running drama series you care to mention – from Casualty to Poirot to Doctor Who – and plenty of award-winning theatre shows). It was the sort of evening that the Royal Vauxhall Tavern excels at producing, being quite unlike anything else available on gay London’s cabaret scene.
