I would rather sit through an opera, sung by the dumb than this!

Neil Sedaka is the latest singer whose back catalogue will receive the compilation musical treatment. Laughter in the Rain, which takes its title from Sedaka�s 1975 chart-topper, charts the highs and lows of the career of �pop music�s ultimate survivor�.

The new show, which has a book by Philip Norman, premieres on 1 March 2010 at Bromley�s Churchill Theatre, before touring, until 3 July 2010, to 14 more venues with further dates to be announced.

I was worried it might be an Ayckbourn festival "starring" former Big Brother alumni. Still quite some way to go before being truly hellish, mefeels...

I'd love to know how Kenwright persuades the likes of Sedaka and Manilow into allowing their magnificent catalogues to be dragged across UK stages in such dross as 'Cant Smile Without You' and now this one.
As predicted after its disastrous tour, 'Cant Smile Without You' very rapidly fell of the scene- never to be heard of again- thank God.

I'd like to know how people are still backing Kenwrights ridiculous ideas!
