Unknown-2Unknown-1Unknown-3This is a great summer for the musical revivals in London: An American in Paris, 42nd Street, Carousel, On the Town.  They have all been wonderful productions. And Oklahoma still to come in  August in the Proms.

But off centre a bit, a marvellous new production of Working has opened at the Southwark Playhouse ( till July 2nd). It is outstanding and a must see.  Based on Studs Terkel’s masterpiece oral  history WORKING – published in 1974, this is the revised and updated version.

It has new songs along with some classic songs from the original – every one is a dramatic delight with a on the ball young and older cast. Dynamic dance abounds. Really is something special..
