Not old fashioned, simple good ole jovial and loving songs. The actors are young, talented and gifted...And give it a contemporary edge, that made me love it! There is a storyline and Des O Connor magnificently played a fine role whilst it was at the Playhouse in Charing Cross, London.

Brillant. The actors not only act but play too. Even though the story is a bit corny the music is just fantastic and the costumes are just great. It's now on tour, try and catch it if you can!

Just come home from this great show in Windsor. Real feel good show, excellent performances and live music. All the cast looked as if they were having a great time, as we were in the audience. All the sixties hits kept coming fast. It was a really good story line too with the happy ending. Mark Wynter was excellent, still... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
