Sauce Loves… Theatre


Here at Sauce we’re big fans of the theatre, especially if it includes a pre-show dinner and is followed by cocktails. Tredwell’s, Marcus Wareing’s newly opened restaurant, is located right in the heart of the theatre district and is the perfect place for pre and post show food and drinks.

To celebrate the restaurant opening in the heart of the buzzing West End, Tredwell’s has teamed up with The Scottsboro Boys to create a brand new theatre themed cocktail. They are giving you the chance to vote for your favourite, which will feature on the Tredwell’s menu. The two cocktails to choose from are; The Haywoods Tale containing Gin, Green Tea, Cardamom and Lime; and the Bones and Tambo Tonic which contains Maraschino, Green Chartreuse, Lime and Soda.

Voting can be done on Twitter here.

Just favourite for The Haywoods Tale and retweet for the Bones and Tambo Tonic.

To help you out on any future theatre bookings, here’s our list of our favourite West End Shows this autumn:

Scottsboro Boys

This musical combines social conscience with wittily inventive direction and choreography from Susan Stroman, telling the story of the Scottsboro Boys Trial. The Trial happened in Alabama US in 1931 and is about nine black teenagers that were falsely accused of rape. One of our favourite parts in the show was a tap-dancing scene by 13-year-old Eugene, which contrasts the jauntiness of the song and the injustice suffered by the accused victims. Of course we remembered to vote for our favourite Scottsboro Boys cocktail, created by Tredwell’s. More info here.

King Charles III

If you’re a fan of the Royal family, then this show is a must see. We don’t want to spoil the thrill of the show by telling you the plots twists and turns, but we will tell you that our favourite scene is when Prince Harry seeks comfort-food and plebeian advice, having fallen head over heels for an unsuitable art student. More info here.

 

Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

This show, which was adapted from the seventeen literary award-winning novel of the same name, follows a fifteen year old boy as he tries to solve the mystery of a murdered dog. We adore the quirky main character. More info here.

Matilda

The show beings with a chorus of kids singing a song called ‘Miracle,’ but the real star of the show, is Bertie Carvel who plays Miss Trunchbull. We just couldn’t get enough of this hammer-throwing champion of a sadistic headmistress. Our favourite scene, of course, is when plump Bruce Bogtrotter is forced to eat a giant chocolate cake all by himself. Nobody at Sauce is ever complaining about eating cake! More info here.

Memphis

 MEMPHIS_keyart-copy-copy

Falling in Love with a beautiful club singer, one young man’s vision to bring her music out of the clubs and onto the airwaves of America flies in the face of cultural divides and sparks a music revolution that shakes the world. The original songs by Bon Jovi kept us grooving throughout the show. More info here.

 

Made in Dagenham

Based on the 2010 Film, Made in Dagenham is a brand new musical comedy starring Gemma Arterton. The show is set in Essex in the late 1960’s and tells the story of mother and Ford Factory worker Rita O’Grady. Faced with the news that women in the sewing room are facing a pay cut, Rita summons all her strength and decides to fight back. We love seeing Arteron, former Bond girl, as she transforms from the screen to the stage. This show is a must see! More info here.
