Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas stage production at the Vaults. Firstly trying to find the place was a bit of mind blow. Then you have to remember leake street is the one where all the graffiti artists hang out. It’s in a set or arches and tunnels under the trains of busy waterloo.
Walking in I thought I had stumbled into a punch drunk / secret cinema kind of event. Surrounded by jazzy decked out interiors, taco stands and roulette tables. Everything was shiny. The atmosphere is cool to say the least.
A merging crowd of young hipsters and totally trendy elderly all came together for this. The show itself was everything you wanted it to be. With animated illustrations projected onto the walls and music following you through the performance it was set up great.
The thing you really have to thank them for was following the words of Thompson. It felt as though the book was being brought to life in front of your eyes live. It was great.
After the show the venue came to life with live music and DJ’s. What a great place.
