Salad Days

Theatre, Off-West End
5 out of 5 stars
(1user review)
For the third year running, Tête A Tête's marvellously entertaining revival of Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds's extravagantly silly 1954 musical serves as an honorary, credit crunch-defying Christmas show at Riverside Studios. Plucky newly weds Timothy and Jane acquire a magical piano that makes strangers dance, resulting here in plenty of kitsch choreography before a flying saucer ride finale over London.

I saw the show in its final week. It was as fresh as ever. The world needs Salad Days. It is joyful, innocent, non-violent, devoid of swear words - simply a sunny show to make the world realise that life can be wonderful if we would only make the effort. I hope Tete a Tete will stage it again next year - it will be its diamond jubilee. Some people label it as being silly. Of course it is. But it is better than being so serious that we forget ours is a wonderful life and that our world is a wonderful place if we would only allow it to be so.
