Liverpool Pride Presents: Can’t Stop The Music

December 18, 2017 @ 6:45 pm - 8:55 pm

Liverpool Pride has one last sparkly bauble to treat you to this year!

Can’t Stop The Music is a piece of campery that just can’t be missed – as Brian Robinson, programmer for Flare in London says

“A landmark in the history of camp, produced by the legendary Allan Carr. Can’t Stop the Music features most of your favourite Village People songs, including the breathtaking gym sequences for ‘Y.M.C.A.’ alongside other great and often jaw-dropping musical numbers. As ridiculous as any Judy Garland ‘let’s do a show in our own back yard’ musical, the word ‘gay’ may never be mentioned but you can still have a ‘Magic Night’ as the song has it, ‘when we come inside each other’.

The skimpy plot has Steve Gutenberg wanting to put together a band in New York. His friend (Valerie Perrine) persuades a record company executive (the dramatic debut of Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner) to launch the band. The posters screamed ‘the smash hit musical of the 80s’ but audiences stayed away. Make that mistake and you’ll miss out on this gorgeous, disco-era monument to camp!”

Other great Can’t Stop the Music trivia:

it was the FIRST Golden Raspberry Worst Film (Razzies) award winner and in fact inspired the creation of the awards!

it was directed by the fabulous Nancy Walker, better known as Ida Morgenstern, mother of the lead character in 1970’s sitcom Rhoda

We strongly recommend that you suspend all good taste for the evening and come along to enjoy some crazy festive fun.
