If you love tapping your feet along to classic songs then Queen’s Theatre’s latest production, Hot Stuff, is the perfect night out for you.

This glam rock musical is filled with familiar, much-loved, 1970s hits – from Tina Turner to The Rolling Stones – so you cannot help but beat out a rhythym as the performers belt out the tunes.

The story follows the journey of Joe Soap who wants nothing more than to be a famous rock star.

But in his pursuit of his dream he makes a deal with the devil’s disciple Lucy Fur – played by Lady Felicia – who takes control of his destiny.

I did think the storyline drifted towards the end of the performance but this was countered by stirring performances of hits including I Will Survive, Blame it on the Boogie and, of course, Hot Stuff.

Hot Stuff has received acclaim since it began its run at the theatre with narrator, Cameron Jones, being nominated for best male in a supporting role in the Off West End Theatre Awards.

It is a nostalgic show perfect for those who love to spend an evening enjoying listening to classic songs.

Hot Stuff will run at Queen’s Theatre, in Billet Lane, Hornchurch, until June 13.
