Hand To God at the Vaudeville Theatre In London

I saw Hand To God last year at the Booth Theater in New York City.  It has been playing in London at the Vaudeville Theatre since February 5, 2016 and will play through June 11, 2016.

I recall sitting in beautiful seats when I caught a preview performance of Hand To God and for the first 20 minutes or so of this show, I kept thinking to myself "is this really happening on stage right now".  In what is described as a "dark comedy" (dark to say the least in my opinion), the show has been described as "Avenue Q meets The Book of Mormon" by one critic or "kinda Sesame Street meets The Exorcist" by The New York Times.  Can you imagine?

Although I find it difficult to describe this very whacky comedy, I must say that after those first 20 minutes or so, even I started to relax and enjoy the craziness.  In any case let me try to explain it this way.

Hand To God is a comedy, written by Robert Askins that takes place in the very religious town of Cypress, Texas.  This incredibly dark comedy tells us about a shy teenager by the name of Jason and his bible school project- a puppet that goes by the name of Tyrone.  During the course of the show we witness Tyrone's "satan-like" behavior when offering his opinions on many subjects that include love, faith and everything in between.  Eventually, Tyrone takes over Jason's personality and problems and puts everyone in Jason's world under tremendous strain.

Right now the London production of Hand To God features Harry Melling, who is known to many as playing in the role of Dudley Dursley in the Harry Potter films.

If you are thinking about seeing something different in London, then I can assure you that Hand To God will be a great choice.  Sometimes if we give ourselves the opportunity to experience something different, we end up really enjoying ourselves.

If you want to talk about obtaining Hand To God tickets in London, please consider calling the Broadway and London ticket experts at Applause-Tickets.  I think you'll be glad you did.

Cheers to the creators and London cast of Hand To God.
