Love Story at the Union Theatre/Joanna Riding Live In The Delfont Room

SO the sun rose on the second bumper day of theatre and  I was excited. I was off to the Union Theatre to see their production of Howard Goodall’s Love Story before heading over to the Delfont Rooms at the Prince of Wales Theatre to see one of my favourite actresses, Joanna Riding in her cabaret, as part of the Live in the Delfont Room Cabaret Season.

Earlier this week I was lucky enough to catch the hottest new show to arrive in the glittering West End, ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels‘. Having done some out of town tryouts in Manchester and er, Aylesbury, the Scoundrels have now landed in the Savoy Theatre, tucked away underneath the Strand. Based on the cult comedy classic of the same name, starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin, it’s an absolute romp all stationed in the French Riviera. Expect flirty french maids, the  ...
