Benidorm Live

Benidorm Live

★★★★☆ Bawdy:

Boldly brash – and brazen with it – the live musical version of ITV hit Benidorm combines plenty of recognition for the show’s fans with the kind of comedy that would make a panto dame blush.

Titanic the Musical

★★★★☆    Tense and satisfying:

Tragic in a way that only stories of real life events can be, there is no small amount of hubris on display in this powerful touring production of Titanic the Musical which is at the Playhouse to Saturday.
