History should be taught like this more often. From the soul burning mc Miss Atomic to the talented, energetic cast the hardcore of Route 66 or the first frontier trails are laid right there right in front of you with all the pot holes, hard shoulder and slip road moments that can lead to agony or ecstasy. All done to a musical backdrop that captures the sweat and blood soaked tracks and the Rat Pack hell raising perfectly. Throw in a bit of boom and bust and the lessons are there for all to see in a 2 hour 20 minute warm breeze. Beats learning about it in a class room or via a book and you can taste and smell the history. Thankfully Vegas experienced it's record visitor numbers in 2012 so all the cocktail waiteresses should be back in full employment and Chuck back in business.

elements of this are great - our mc / pianist for example - and the first 10 minutes showed a lot of promise. however is was all down hill from there on. T.O. bills this is as 'experimental' but it's no more so than half the stuff at the NT, just not nearly as sharp, well paced, witty or tuneful. Some good ideas but all came off as a bit "last year at drama school" stuff.
