What’s On in February at The Epstein Theatre

Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre promises a month of critically acclaimed drama, classic hits, award-winning comedy, magic with a twist and the return of an acclaimed show born at The Epstein.

For Drama lovers, Riot Act kicks off a 10-date UK tour at The Epstein on Wed 5th Feb, marking LGBT+ History Month. Direct from the West-End, this critically acclaimed show, written and performed by Alexis Gregory and directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE, is a hard-hitting, hilarious and moving exploration of 6 decades of the LGBT rights movement.

We Love Little Mix kick off the music month on Sat 1st Feb, with four fantastic singers and dancers who really capture the look, the sound and all the dance moves of one of the UK’s most loved Girl Bands. On Fri 7th Feb A Foreigner’s Journey pays tribute to bands Foreigner and Journey with the very best songs from each, including Don’t Stop Believing, Separate Ways, Cold As Ice, Juke Box Hero, Waiting For A Girl Like You and I Want To Know What Love Is, plus many more.

Midnight Train To Georgia: A Celebration of Gladys Knight (Sat 8th Feb) salutes the Empress of Soul with classic hits including Baby Don’t Change Your Mind, Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me, The Way We Were / Try To Remember, Licence To Kill, her signature song Midnight Train To Georgia and many more!

On Sat 22nd Feb, The Epstein welcomes back the critically acclaimed Something About Simon. Having been born at The Epstein in 2018 to sell-out audiences, the show went on to 5-star rated performances on the Edinburgh Fringe, New York and Belfast. Now it returns to where it all started as singer-songwriter Gary Edward Jones recites the music of his idol, while telling his unique story through visuals, stage design and, of course, the music. Gary is a natural storyteller, tracing the sometimes-poignant moments in Paul Simon’s life and career, that occasionally mirror his own. Something About Simon is not a tribute show; it is one musician authentically honouring the music of another.

Closing out the month, The Jersey Beats perform on Tue 25th Feb. Celebrating the music of the 100 million album-selling Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, it’s an evening of great music and fun, featuring Big Girls Don’t Cry, Walk Like A Man, Bye, Bye, Baby and Oh What A Night, it’s an evening of great music, fun and more.

There’s a great month of Comedy coming up too. The Magnificent Nina West Show kicks off the laughs on Tue 4th Feb, presenting some of the UK’s the UK and Europe’s first ever Drag Magic show. On Sun 16th Feb, award-winning comedian and bestselling author Sam Avery (AKA The Learner Parent) presents Toddlergeddon – a must-see stand-up show for parents, asking searching questions: How do you raise a toddler with more attitude than Kanye West? Can you negotiate effectively with a pre-schooler who knows you’re clueless?

Queen of Scottish Comedy, Janey Godley’s Soup Pot arrives on Thu 20th Feb. Famous for her live voice overs and stand up (and the rude sign with which she welcomed Donald Trump to his Trump Turnberry), check out her new show and latest patter.

On Wed 26th Feb Ardal O’Hanlon returns to Liverpool with The Showing Off Must Go On. In an age of raging populism, identity politics, the end of truth, the collapsing middle ground, Ardal is forced to saddle his high horse again and ride fearlessly into the culture wars.

On Fri 28th and Sat 29th Feb, The Epstein presents a comedy world premiere from the pen of David Spicer entitled Health & Safety. The country’s top safety officers gather for their annual national conference. What could possibly go wrong?

Britain’s biggest anti-Brexit podcast REMAINIACS hosts its first-ever live show in Liverpool on Sat 15th Feb. Whether your rallying cry is Nil Satis Nisi OptimEUm or EU’ll Never Walk Alone, join in an afternoon of top quality Brexit analysis, poor quality Brexit jokes, audience questions, surprises… and a little hope in the darkness.
