Jet Set Go!

This event has now finished. Until Apr 18 2009

Time Out says

'Jet Set Go!' is basically 'On the Town' for the budget airline generation, but rather than a bevy of sailors docking in New York in search of romance, it's a crew of 'hello, sailors' on a stop-over in New York on the hunt for a Chelsea boy and some cut price Abercrombie and Fitch. The production is as quick, cheap and garish as the airlines to which it pays homage. As soon as this terrifying lot burst down the aisle, decked in bright purple and orange uniforms, performing a kind of 'Emergency Exits Here, Here and Here' dance, you feel the need to put your head in the brace position and reach for the sick bag. That sickness is soon dispelled as the cast prove to be Fab-U-Lous, particularly John McManus as the perma-tanned Ryan and Amy Coombes as billowing nut-job Hayley.The plot whizzes past: Ryan fancies gay but not GAY Richard, Jim keeps nipping off to join the mile high club with Latino Julia, and Nicola is just ever so homesick… ultimately, they're all love-lost and over-sexed, but they somehow manage to crowbar some tenderness into this short haul.
