Miss Coco Puru and Tracy Barlow
Wednesday 18 April, 6pm – midnight
This Wednesday you get two amazing and totally different shows on the same night at The RVT.

The second show of the night starts at 9.30pm and is none other than the UK’s most wanted woman, Tracy Barlow, in her new show, Unleashed. Expect the unexpected, the perverse, the outrageous and some show tunes as you’ve never heard them.
