Saturday afternoon matinee of 39 Steps. So so funny. Totally unexpected that it was going to be so hilarious. Fantastic, 4 people playing over an hundred roles between them and a laugh a minute. Pure genius.

What can I say.. Sweeney Todd was sensational..I have been to the lyric on many occasions and it never fails to deliver..It is class without the snobbery and it has a homely feel that encourages repeat bookings..Well done "The Lyric"..

My wife had her 2 wing mirrors kicked off her car when parked on the embankment for a night at the theatre so that was a costly night out. Suppose it's park @ your own risk.
