Review: 42nd Street

42nd Street is a long-running musical based on 1933 film adaptation of a novel by the same name. It is a story about Broadway, taking place around Broadway, and originally performed on Broadway.

Review: Chicago

Chicago the musical at the Phoenix Theatre

Nothing says excitement like a rambunctious, prohibition-era musical centered around murder and corruption! This is what Chicago: The Musical is all about, and I couldn’t be happier to have it return to London’s West End.
