The week ahead at the Marina Theatre is packed with a mixture of live shows, live screenings and film.
Tomorrow evening, top comedian Jimmy Carr takes to the Marina stage for two performances of his new show Funny Business.
The first performance at 7pm is sold out, but at the time of going to press, tickets are still available for the 10pm performance.
On Sunday, at 2.30pm, Andre Rieu’s pre-recorded anniversary concert from Vrijthof Square in Maastricht will be shown on the Marina’s big screen.
The dramatic and alluring medieval square will be transformed into a romantic open-air concert, featuring André and his famous 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, along with many famous guest artists, soloists, light shows and spectacular fireworks.
Later on in the day, at 7pm, you can see comedy legends Monty Python perform live for the first time in more than three decades.
This show will be broadcast live via satellite onto the Marina’s big screen from the O2 Arena in London.
At a combined age of 358, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin will once again perform some of their greatest hits, with modern, topical, Pythonesque twists.

Their eagerly awaited reunion promises to be among the biggest live events of 2014.
