by Richard Allen - May 4, 2022

Occasionally a show comes along that ignores all the established rules of what musical theatre is supposed to be and instead opts to poke fun at, well, the theatre itself. Something Rotten, the acclaimed Broadway hit which opened in 2015 and was nominated for ten Tony awards, including Best Musical, is one of those shows. Unapologetically silly and enthusiastically fun, the audience can't help but be charmed by its chaotic joyfulness.

The Week That Wasn't is a brand-new Sky One comedy show where famous faces are thrown into an alternate week of events that may not have happened (but probably should have). Join the UK's leading impressionists as they literally put words into the mouths of celebrities, seriously dubbing them up the wrong way. Master mimic Alistair McGowan is reunited with Ronni Ancona for the first time since their The Big Impression show, together with a host of brilliant new impressionists Matt Forde (Unspun With Matt Forde), Luke Kempner (The Tracey Ullman Show) and Jess Robinson (Dead Ringers) mischievously re-voicing existing footage. From celeb gossip to sporting moments and political scandals, nothing and no-one is off limits in this Sky Original production, produced by Avalon.
