Lily Savage to star in Aladdin at the O2
Date Posted: 26/03/12
Paul O'Grady's cross-dressing alter-ego, Lily Savage, is set to take on the role of Widow Twankey in a strictly limited run of Aladdin A Wish Come True at the O2 Arena later this year.
Fans staying in hotels near the O2 Arena can book tickets to see the show from Friday, December 7th 2012 until Saturday, January 5th 2013.
It is taking place in a 1,900-seat theatre beneath the canopy of the O2.
Paul O'Grady said: "Lily had such a great time playing Widow Twankey last time in Southampton that I am delighted she gets to have another go and that this will be in her very own, brand new purpose built theatre at the O2 - which will be filled with the magic of Old Peking."
The character of Lily Savage was retired by O'Grady from 2004 to 2010 but he brought her back to do the Aladdin show in Southampton.
