We absolutely loved "It Happened in Key West" at Charing Cross Theatre, London. It was brilliant. We laughed, we cried and romanticised. All cast were amazing. @wadesong and @lysmartyn vocals and acting outstanding. Music, scenery, lighting, sound, costumes etc brilliant. A fun show (not to be taken too seriously!) filled with every emotion possible. Loved it. Thank you. Will be back to see it again before the run ends.
