Last night Stu and I went to see Top Hat at the Aldwych Theatre in London's glitzy West End.
Now seventy-eight years after Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers lit up Hollywood’s silver screen with one of the greatest dance musicals of all time, RKO Pictures’ Top Hat is packed full of Irving Berlin’s greatest hits such as Let’s Face the Music and Dance, Cheek to Cheek and Top Hat, White Tie and Tails,
The show is a giddy, glorious celebration of 1930s song and dance - with lots of tap dancing!
Sadly the chemistry wasn't quite there between the two leads last night and it fell rather flat compared to the previous occasion when Roger and I went to see the same show last summer with Tom Chambers and Summer Strallen.
