My wife and myself went to see Putting on the Ritz at The Grand Theatre on 21st August. We both absolutely love this theatre and this show was superb. We loved all the music, and dancing and singing of yesteryear. All the cast were brilliant, It was a treat to sit and watch this fabulous production.
