|The LONDON TOAST THEATRE presents Vivienne McKee - Denmarks very own British DIVA
DO YOU THINK I'M SEXY ? SIXTY ?
DARING , DECADENT AND ALWAYS DELIGHTFUL, VIVIENNE McKEE IS BACK WITH HER OWN SOLO STAND UP SHOW
This time she feels old and wise enough to let it all hang out - (let's hope not literally !)
In her own hilariously funny style, she tells us how it really feels
- to still feel like an an immigrant in Denmark after 30 years
(in English of course ! )
- to manage to still live with the same Dane who brought her here in the first place .although Danes now have the highest statistic in the world for living alone
- to run an English-speaking theatre company in a country where many would like Pia Kjærsgaard to be culture minister
- to finally come out of the closet as a sixty year old woman.
Cosmetic surgery, parking, girlfriends, relationships, religion, fashion, politics, sex, pornography, fitness, food and the financial crisis, and more!!!
- all come under the screwball scrutiny of this delicious diva who gives us a glimpse inside her wild and wonderfully madcap mind.
- all this plus - special guests!! Songs and the audience's active involvement !
Let's face it you'll never look at a rød pølser in the same way again !

The LONDON TOAST THEATRE is one of the most successful English theatre companies in Europe, playing regularly to audiences of more than 60,000 a year at its home base in Copenhagen and to many more, throughout Denmark and other European countries.
The LONDON TOAST THEATRE was established in 1981 under the artistic direction of Vivienne McKee and the administrative direction of Søren Hall, as a platform for the presentation of Engllish language theatre to Scandinavian audiences.
Over the years the company's repertoire has included, not only modern plays by such distinguished British playwrights such as Wesker, Pinter, Berkoff and Ayckbourn, but also productions of Shakespeare and corporate entertainment, musical cabarets, stand-up comedy shows and drama workshops.
Every year since 1982, the company presents an enormously successful Christmas show in English, which contains all the elements of British pantomime blended with Monty Python, Old Time Music Hall, Dario Fo, Comedia Del Arte, stand-up comedy and Danish humour.
The show is written and directed by Vivienne McKee and attracts sold-out houses for its entire run, and now has an almost cult-like status on the Danish theatre scene. The show is known as CRAZY CHRISTMAS and offers a new story-line each year, taking, as its inspiration, well-known stories and folk-heros. For example:-
Count Dracula in "A PAIN IN THE NECK"
Sherlock Holmes in "THE CASE OF THE GREAT DANE"
King Arthur in "OH WHAT A K-NIGHT!
James Bond in "NEVER SAY BONDAGE IS NOT ENOUGH"
The show is performed in the heart of Copenhagen, within the famous Tivoli Gardens, in the magnficent 1000 seat theatre, GLASSALEN - and forms part of the internationally renowned "Tivoli Gardens Christmas Season" - attracting thousands of people from all over the world.
In addition to its theatre work, the LONDON TOAST THEATRE offers corporate entertainment including cabarets, international stand-up comedians and Murder Mystery entertainment in castles and hotels in Denmark and Sweden.
The company's voice-over agency, "SPEAKER'S CORNER" , provides English and American voices for dubbing and narration on commercials and films.
