Time Out says
Fri Nov 23 2012
Tucked cosily away between Oxford Circus and Great Marlborough Street, the London Palladium is one of the city's best-loved theatres. 'The Royal Variety Show', a perennial British favourite, is filmed here, while commercial stage shows from 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' to 'Scrooge' have benefited from a steady flow of popular TV faces. Perhaps the biggest draw, however, was non-celebrity Connie Fisher who reigned supreme in Andrew Lloyd Webber's very public auditions, the BBC talent contest 'How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?' Given that the theatre's quaint Argyll Street home became almost impassable in the evenings during Fisher's stage residence for 'The Sound of Music' (as well as during Whoopi Goldberg's 2009 musical production of 'Sister Act'), it's best to avoid the locale around 7pm.

Marvin Hamlisch’s 1975 musical about a group of dancers auditioning for an unnamed Broadway show is – like the late Hamlisch himself – one of the all-time greats. And to all intents and purposes and insofar as is possible, this revival is that 1975 production....

Perennial punk poet Clarke delivers his dark and hilariously deadpan, socio-political spoken-word fare.

If the best days of ITV's singing talent show 'The X Factor' are blatantly behind it, that's no reason to stop Simon Cowell trying to prop up the brand with this game undertaking: an officially sanctioned musical spoof of the show, produced by Cowell's...
