I am still humming, singing and grinning after watching an epic performance of 42nd Street at Theatre Royal Drury Lane. This brilliant show brightens up these cold and dark days- and I'm not just talking about the January weather. And that's another impact-it has made me attempt to write smart wisecracks, which sadly do not reflect the clever and witty one-liners in 42nd Street's script and lyrics.

REVIEW: 42nd Street (in exactly 250 words)
You know that 42nd Street is going to sit on the cheesy side of musical theatre when the overture fades out, and a load of people start squeaking with excitement that Julian Marsh is doing a show! But nobody's buying tickets to see 42nd Street for hard-hitting reality; this production is centred entirely around spectacular dance. Embrace the cheesiness, and 42nd Street is a show that you might just fall for. Head over tap-shoe heel.
