The alternative cabaret scene bids an achy goodbye to progressive collective, Eat Your Heart Out
Set up five years ago by savvy show-master Scottee, and a far cry from Millenni in fishnets, the rolling company will take to the stage for a final live performance this weekend.
Hoping to ruffle feathers one last time with their experimental, politicised, poke-in-the-eye fun, the troupe will be doing what they do best; narrative, burlesque and… err… ‘War Horse’, apparently.
The grand finale will feature performances from Scottee, Nigel & Louise (Shunt), Duo Bogoff (Sue Hart & Matthew Bowyer), Damien Slash, Paul Kindersley, Season Butler, Miss Annabel Sings, Nando Messias, Masumi Tipsy Saito and Ginger Johnson. There will also be films Films from Theo Adams Company, Matthew Stone, Giruy Wigmore and Angel Rose, and, to get a little glam yourself, Pay-what-you-want haircuts and styling from Open Barbers.

The final Eat Your Heart Out performance will be on July 19 – 20 at Shoreditch Town Hall.
And, we are sad to see yet another door close – the Pale Blue Door…
The rabbit hole joint of alcoves, balconies, outré deckings and hidden installations has made for the most eclectic of pop-up dining experiences. With the divine, and wickedly funny, dragster A Man to Pet as a host, and charming waiters serving up boozy three-course dinners, a last chance visit is a must.
The Pale Blue Door, Dalston, closes on July 27.
