Feather pants! Feather pants! Feather pants!

Last night was the big shiny manly "Swan Lake" at the big shiny Cadillac Palace, a theatre which so wonderfully embodies its name that I don't have to describe it. Swan Lake is a marvellous show because:
a. russian ballet music
b. shirtless men in feathery pants having gay tension all over the place. Swan-studs!

However, it was a bit of a cautionary tale about remembering to eat before shows. The first half of act one filled me with delight, but the second half, the magical swan-communing half, seemed very long. I can't tell if there was some flaw in that part, or if it was just how badly I wanted to get to the snack bar. I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt, because I loved the parts of the show for which I was not starving.

Was this the Matthew Bourne production? Because his "Edward Scissorhands" is currently playing all round Britain. People, if you can get tickets, you should go see!

We viewed a Swanlake production on Sky Performance with men only performing in feathers so much like to get a copy of this or see it live in Britain . Is this the same company ? Can someone help me with information ?
