QUENTIN LETTS reviews the Tina musical 

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 03:44:35 +0100

This show is a great deal better than most jukebox musicals. It is not just a collection of hit songs dotted with dialogue. The music has been moulded to fit the story of Anna Mae Bullock, as Tina was born.

QUENTIN LETTS reviews the Tina Turner musical

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 22:29:48 +0100

Dimples to kill. An impish, insistent stage personality. And a voice by Pratt & Whitney. That voice, I tell you: it could reduce the very citadel of Jericho to rubble, writes QUENTIN LETTS.

Quentin Letts watches as Corbyn muttered like a bulldog

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 10:51:36 +0100

Wed, 28 Mar 2018 01:19:11 +0100

The audience at a pro-Brexit event included his mother, Lady Rees-Mogg, charming and twinkly. She told me it was quite wrong to describe Jacob as a toff. Her own father had been a Welsh tenant farmer.

Fri, 23 Mar 2018 01:52:21 +0000

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 16:21:31 +0000
