The Illegal Eagles
Mon 13 Apr
Celebrating the music of the legendary West Coast Country Rock band, The Illegal Eagles return to Theatre Royal Brighton for another outstanding show promising more of their trademark musical prowess, acute attention to detail and incredible showmanship.
This critically acclaimed show features the very best from the Eagles’ catalogue of classics including Hotel California, Desperado, Take It Easy, New Kid In Town, Life In The Fast Lane and many more.
The latest all-star line up of the show, produced as ever by Phil Aldridge, features Tony Kiley (formerly from 80’s sensation The Blow Monkeys) on drums, Bafta Award winner Christian Phillips on vocals and guitars, Trevor Newnham (Dr Hook) vocals and bass, Greg Webb vocals and guitars, Mike Baker vocals and guitars and Garreth Hicklin vocals and guitars.
Garreth, Greg, Trevor, Mike and Christian effortlessly capture the vocal style and delivery of Henley, Walsh, Fry, Schmidt and Meisner and are masters of their respective instruments.
The power house rhythm section of Kiley and Newnham has added a dimension that is sensitive to the subtle needs of the Eagles’ songs and kicks hard where necessary.
Dead Ringers Live
Sun 26 Apr
Step in to the world of one of the most influential and critically acclaimed radio shows of the last 20 years, when Dead Ringers Live comes to Theatre Royal Brighton.
This is the very first time this legendary BBC Radio 4 programme has been taken out of the studio and performed live on tour and promises to be a hilarious evening. In the current political climate, there’s never been a better time to bring this unique show to the stage. Dead Ringers has seen some of the biggest names on comedy come through its ranks since it was created by comedy polymath Bill Dare, producer of Spitting Image. First aired on BBC Radio 4 in January 2000, it has poked fun at the great, the good and the ridiculous without censor.
These shows will star the Dead Ringers dream team – Jon Culshaw, Jan Ravens, Lewis MacLeod and Duncan Wisbey – cue cards in hand, bringing their radio studio to life in a stage show of acerbic political humour. Expect special appearances from Donald Trump, Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Jeremy Vine and John Humphrys, all given the Dead Ringers treatment.
Dead Ringers Live will be a mixture of classics such as ‘Disney Takes Over The Today Show’ and the unique Dead Ringers take on The Archers, combined with new sketches written on the move as major events evolve on the day.

Jinkx Monsoon & Major Scales
Together Again, Again!
Thu 30 Apr
It’s been forty five years since Jinkx Monsoon and Major Scales have set foot on stage together. The long endured cabaret duo have long since gone their separate ways; Jinkx becoming a faded TV movie starlet, and Major fading into musical obscurity— each of them clinging onto what scraps of fame they still have. Now, after decades of anticipation, the two of them have come together for one final reunion upon the stage. They’re together again, again!
The RuPaul’s Drag Race star and musical prodigy Major Scales return to the UK with their most outrageously raucous show yet!
Jinkx Monsoon is a hard working single mother with ambition. Since winning Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, she has toured the world performing her original cabaret shows with her music partner, Major Scales. The duo have also released two albums: The Inevitable Album & The Ginger Snapped. You may recognize her voice from Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe and Mighty Magiswords. Her web show, Cool Mom, co-starring her comedy partner Nick Sahoyah, can be seen exclusively on WOW Presents Plus. When she is not touring for the holidays, she is starring in the National Tour of Xanadu with co-star Ginger Minj.
Major Scales is the evil twin of Richard Andriessen, a musician, writer and performer based in Seattle. He has written everything from award winning New York shows on the east coast to music for amateur adult films on the west.
