This autumn there will now be two Profumo affair shows in the West End. Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Stephen Ward' focuses on the osteopath at the centre of the scandal, whereas Gill Adams's 'Keeler' is based on the autobiography written by Christine Keeler in 2001. Expect scandal and intrigue in this story of the secretary of state who was forced to resign over his affair with a showgirl. Paul Nicholas directs.

Not very impressed. The acting, especially that of Sarah as Christine was poor. She was not sultry, sexy or charismatic as was the real Christine. The 1989 film 'Scandal' provides much more depth both in terms of characters and story. Second act was better than first as it was less focused on Sarah and the go-go dancers ads nothing more than annoyance. Good set was the only bonus.
