Everywhere’s caught royal wedding fever and plans for lavish celebrations are go; all’s set to go swimmingly providing the squeals of a very important pig are silenced in time for the big day. No, the Royals aren’t working on new ways to halt the faux pas of certain more senior members of the family, it’s [...]
The National Theatre’s smash hit War Horse transferred to Broadway on 14 April to rave reviews after successfully leaving London audiences teary eyed in the capital since 2007.
