The Ronson seal of approval
Jon Ronson’s latest show has the not quite trip off the tongue title: ‘Tales from The Last Days of August and The Butterfly Effect’. It’s based on his hit podcasts and it promises to be a mysterious, funny, sad tale about porn, kindness, violence, bad thoughts, and the wonders of remaining curious. There will be new stories, never heard before audio, some very strange (PG rated) bespoke porn clips, and maybe some special guests too. The show has the same level of detail and widescreen storytelling that you would expect from a television documentary, and makes for a story that unfolds madly in the most unpredictable of ways. I never thought he would top ‘The Men Who Stare At Goats’ but it looks like he’s done just that.
Jon Ronson: Tales From The Last Days of August and The Butterfly Effect, Tuesday 21 May, Tyne Theatre & Opera House, Newcastle, 8pm, £25.50. tynetheatreandoperahouse.uk
