     Tickets are now on sale for the strictly limited 4 show run of Brodsky/Baryshnikov in London's Apollo Theatre, West End. Running from 3-6 May 2017, this one man show features famed ballet dancer and actor Mikhail Baryshnikov bringing to life the words of Nobel Prize winner and US Poet Laureate Joseph Brodsky. Brodsky and Baryshnikov each left the Soviet Union in the 1970s-- Brodsky to the United States and Baryshnikov to Canada. Baryshnikov met Brodsky in 1974, shortly after he was forced by Russian authorities to leave his home. The two remained close until Brodsky's death in 1996.

The Comedy about a Bank Robbery is the creation of Mischief Theatre who created Peter Pan Goes Wrong and The Play that Goes Wrong. The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, although somewhat unsubtle and a touch too predictable, is altogether enjoyable, easy entertainment.

     Scott Elliott’s revival of Sam Shepard’s 1978 masterpiece Buried Child at theTrafalgar Studios, presents a broken, dysfunctional American family stuck in a world of secrecy and denial. The outlook is bleak – a dark family secret hangs in the air like the ever-present rain.
