Dusty The Musical Review Charing Cross Theatre

As much as many may moan about them, the jukebox musical is a form whose appeal seems unlikely to diminish anytime soon.

It was early 2017 when new musical Come From Away opened on Broadway, so it will have been an impatient two-year wait by the time we get to see it on this side of the pond. The West End launch party was a reminder of this sorry fact, whilst also serving to ramp up our […]
