Original Charming Underclothes at the Prince Charles Cinema
London - Saturday, 24th August 1991

Ah now, memories. Yep many years ago, the original crew of Charming Underclothes moved from the Screen on Baker Street cinema to our new home at the Prince Charles Cinema, just off of Leicester Square.
The Screen on Baker Street held just over a hundred people and sold out most Saturday nights, they also only gave us two complimentry tickets for the cast, so most people paid to perform. The nice people at the Prince Charles let all the cast in for free and had space for five hundred in the stalls alone.
We started off performing on Saturday nights at the Prince Charles, but that then got moved to Fridays. The images below are from one of the shows at the Prince Charles and feature several of the founding members of C.U. Stephanie and I together performed for well over 480 shows with Charming Underclothes both at Baker St and the Prince Charles, we left the cast when our first son was born in 1996. I still have the record for the most performances by anyone here in the UK at around 500 shows.
Charming Underclothes as a cast are no more, after losing their weekly home at the Prince Charles they carried on for a while at another London venue and finally disbanded in the early 00's.
I found the negatives during a recent sort out and as I have a nice negative scanner at home thought it would be nice to add a little bit of history to the site.
