ROB ROKICKI BACK IN LONDON – The Pheasantry

In Cabaret, London theatre, Musicals, Opinion, Reviews by Jonathan BazLeave a Comment

Rokicki’s songs offer a refreshing alternative to much of the balladry offered up in new writing. His musical The Lightning Thief is currently running two separate tours in the USA before an off-Broadway run next year and he has another album shortly to be released, imaginatively themed around songs about monsters of popular mythology.
