The cast members who are described as having 'Herculean levels of talent' (WhatsOnStage.com), together with the on-stage musical director, receive five-star reviews every year. Masochistically popular amongst politicians, you may see an MP in the audience. 100% brand-new content. 'Sensational!' (SkyNews.com).
