In Musicals, Reviews by Johnny FoxLeave a Comment

This is not the best week to put on an intimate Sondheim revue. Overshadowed by the glorious Sondheim Prom at the Albert Hall, by Maria Friedman’s all-Sondheim set at Cadogan Hall and the reputedly outstanding Into The Woods just beginning at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and you’re on a hiding to nothing.
