This popular west-end musical is exactly as it sounds…completely bonkers. Based on (or ripped off lovingly from) the classic movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the story follows King Arthur and his jolly band of knights on their quest for the Holy Grail.

Dirty Dancing comes to the Empire: A review

Dancing along past Lime Street, anyone would have thought I was totally bonkers last night. But that’s how infectious this musical is. Dirty dancing isn’t just a show, its a whole experience, a definite must-see this April.  This iconic love story is on at the Empire until the 25th April, just one of the stops on its UK tour. The show is a real crowd-pleaser, hands-down the best choreographed show I have ever seen. Featuring all the popular songs such as ‘Do you love me?’, ‘Hungry eyes’ , ‘De Todo un Poco’ ‘Cry to me’ and of course the...
