BenDeLaCreme is... Ready To Be Committed
  • West End

Global drag icon BenDeLaCreme, presents her latest critically-acclaimed narrative cabaret show, "BenDeLaCreme is...READY TO BE COMMITTED": a hilarious and heartfelt spectacular that blends burlesque, comedy, and original music with her signature Terminally Delightful charm.

After years of people asking the aggressively effervescent queen if she "can please settle down," BenDeLaCreme is finally ready to tie the knot in something besides her corset. Now all she needs is a potential spouse. And a dress. And a cake. And the ability to consider others.

Join the blushing bride as she tackles the pitfalls of love, marriage and romance. It's a relay race to the altar as DeLa dodges pervy Grindr suiters, bitchy wedding cake toppers, and a visit from cupid himself in a limited engagement about the limitations of engagements. Written, directed, and produced by BenDeLaCreme, "BenDeLaCreme is...READY TO BE COMMITTED" showcases the superstar's brilliance at its best, leading to sold-out residencies of the show in New York City and Provincetown in 2019.

"Keeping you entertained while making you think about your place in the world is all a part of the BenDeLaCreme experience." - Forbes
"[BenDeLaCreme is] a bow-adorned conglomerate of mid-century MGM and musical theater, Jessica Rabbit and Elvira, Pee Wee's Playhouse and Christine Taylor's Marcia Brady. Outsized, high-camp, often low-brow things that DeLa, offstage, has forever intellectualized." - NY Magazine's Bedford & Bowery
"self-possessed and chameleonic" - The New York Times

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
