Review | Hotel Paradiso, Underbelly Festival*

We were kindly invited down to watch Hotel Paradiso at the Underbelly Festival and it was just a fab performance! Full of thrills, gasps, laughs and drama!

At the start of the show the characters started off talking to the audience (in character of course) and we both really enjoyed that. It helped us get into the theme of the show perfectly.

The show is based at The Hotel Paradiso. A rather run-down hotel which is run by Madame who unfortunately lost her parents at a young age and was left in charge of the hotel alongside her wine loving concierge and his staff of two, the bell boy and the chambermaid.

Two mysterious bankers arrive with a 24 hour notice to raise the cash for the hotel or lose it for good! Follows is 60 minutes of non stop heart-stopping acrobatics and a series of laugh out loud clowning moments.

Our favourite act of the show was the hula hoop routine, no plot spoilers but it involves lots of hula hoops and a bottle of champagne.

Overall I must say it’s a great show! The performers were fantastic especially with the lighting storm and heavy rain falling onto the tent. The show is only an hour-long, so perfect for the smaller members of the family. A must see and we will definitely be going again!
