It didn't quite make Word of the Year, but the expression 'throwing shade' has found its way into the latest edition of the Collins Dictionary. The significance of this development is somewhat shaded (see what I did there?) by the general bemusement that it took Collins so long to 'discover' the phrase, and that anyone pays attention to dictionaries anymore, except in their online guises as useful tools for students and other plagiarists.

BWW Review: SUNNY AFTERNOON, New Alexandra Theatre, 6 September 2016BWW Review: SUNNY AFTERNOON, New Alexandra Theatre, 6 September 2016
by Emma Cann - Sep 8, 2016

The Olivier Award winning musical Sunny Afternoon swung into Birmingham's New Alexandra Theatre with a burst of sixties excess, rockstar brawls and real rock 'n' roll.  Based on the true story of The Kinks, their early days as a struggling rock band, their huge success and the tumultuous story of their front man, Ray Davies, Sunny Afternoon is a jukebox musical with real grit and heart. The story zips along at a healthy pace, with snapshots and vignettes of the band's life deftly strung together with songs from their back catalogue. The musical opens with one of The Kinks' very first gigs - a hilarious debacle where the London boys rock up at a very conservative Home Counties dance - and progresses to show their first number one 'You Really Got Me', on-stage fights, a tour of America which results in their eventual ban from the country, contractual difficulties, and a their enduring triumphs with songs such as 'Sunny Afternoon' and 'Waterloo Sunset.'  (more...)
