The worst thing about this was Tommy Steele, his co-star (Billy Boyle) was so much better in the show, but was never allowed to shine due to Steele's meglomania. The reviews that I read crucified him, and suggested, quite rightly, Boyle was actually the real talent in the show!

For those who don't read the front page, it's been confirmed that a new production is in the works:

Though they don't say whether this is a completely new show (score etc) or just a revival of the Tommy Steele version...

EDIT - Though the article does say 'a return to London', so I presume it is the same show after all. Oh well.
