And boy did we have a lot to celebrate! The phenomenal new British Musical is based on the smash hit film of the same name, the one that launched Keira Knightley’s now illustrious silver screen career. The show received an instant and unanimous standing ovation amidst cheers that would have been more at home in Wembley Stadium than the West End, followed by 5 Star Reviews in the National Press. Result! Make sure you go and see this fantastic new show for yourself on your next trip to London.
