The Musician 

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Loughborough Town Hall, Tues 16 -20 May

Based on the popular 1988 Hollywood film (who doesn’t love a bit of Steve Martin?), the musical transports us back to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical musical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering 11 Tony Awards. A delicious delight of a musical, the show sizzles and bursts forth with life and incredible energy.

NT Live: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, The Phoenix, Thur 18 May 

Sonia Friedman Productions present Imelda Staunton, Conleth Hill, Luke Treadaway and Imogen Poots in James Macdonald’s critically acclaimed, 5 star production of Edward Albee’s landmark play, broadcast live to cinemas from the Harold Pinter Theatre, London. The Guardian says ‘Imelda Staunton is at her magnificent best.’ Head to the Phoenix to catch this one off viewing. The story goes something like this, in the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha has invited the new professor and his wife to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling. From 7pm
