BWW Review: LICENSED TO ILL, Southwark Playhouse, 2 December 2016
by Rona Kelly - Dec 3, 2016

Jukebox musicals seem to be as popular as ever in the West End, using familiar songs to tell stories on stage. Mamma Mia! is coming close to two decades in London, and newcomers like Motown the Musical are extending their runs.

This evolution of the Beastie Boys is a revolution for the London stage and storytelling. (more...)
