Have you ever known someone who wanted something so badly that they tried too hard to get it? Meet Charity Hope Valentine, the eternal optimist who never stops looking for love... but always seems to be looking in the wrong places. Despite spending her nights working in the seedy Fandango Ballroom, she dreams of a better life and meeting the man of her dreams. Along comes Oscar, a decent guy who might just be her ticket out. But is it all too good to be true?

With a host of well-known tunes, including ‘If my friends could see me now’, ‘Rhythm of life’ and the classic ‘Big spender’, this fantastic and funny musical is the perfect night out.

Book by Neil Simon  |  Music by Cy Coleman  |  Lyrics by Dorothy Fields  |  Based on an original screenplay by Federico Fellini, Tullio Pinelli and Ennios Plaiano  |  Produced for the Broadway Stage by Fryer, Carr and Harris  |  Conceived, Staged and Choreographed by Bob Fosse

----- The Gut Girls @ Bloomsbury Theatre
By emfrfeja

UCLU Drama Society in association with UCLU Stage Crew and the Bloomsbury Theatre presents ‘The Gut Girls’ by Sarah Daniels.

London, one hundred years ago: a city divided by extremes of poverty and wealth.  The Gut Girls rule Deptford’s dockyard slaughterhouses - elbow-deep in blood and guts all day, they ignore society’s rigid rules, drinking, swearing and dancing the nights away in the East End’s notorious music halls.  The Duchess of Albany battles without success to civilise the girls through sobriety and Bible readings, but when the slaughterhouse is suddenly closed down, the girls are faced with terrible choices and must compromise everything they value in order to survive.

A black comedy telling the real-life story of the pre-war East End, Sarah Daniels’ ‘The Gut Girls’ rediscovers a London of slums, mansions and music hall glamour.  This vivid and immersive production by UCLU Drama Society runs for three nights only from 21st to 23rd February 2013, so don’t miss out!

Dates: 21st, 22nd and 23rd February 2013 at 7.30pm
Venue: Bloomsbury Theatre, Gordon Street, WC1H 0AH
Ticket Price: Full Price £10, Concession £7, UCL Concession £5
Tickets can be purchased online (link below) or in person at the Bloomsbury Box Office

----- The Alfred Hitchcock London Locations Walk
By Street Market Blog

Film Historian Sandra Shevey segues into the 12th year of her walk around Alfred Hitchcock`s London film locations.  In addition to the disclosure of arcane film sites Sandra runs through some of the director`s original storyboards and plays `soundbites` from her own 1972 interview with the film director.

`He had just finished filming `Frenzy` which had opened in London and I had recently seen when I was there.  It is very, very eerie to visit a Covent Garden location and stand within the frame of a shot about which he is talking on tape.  Some little has changed in Covent Garden, this is still possible`, says Sandra, age 66.

The walk which profiles locations from 3 important films in the Hitchcock oeuvre (`Frenzy`, `The Man Who Knew Too Much` 1956, and `The Paradine Case`) runs weekly on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

The start time is 11am and the walk runs for 3 hours.
