Imagine I Love Lucy transported to 1950s Moscow, and you'll have a picture of Cheryomushki - a musical comedy by Shostakovich. This unlikely combination was a huge critical and popular success for the Lyric Theatre Hammersmith in 1994. Metro readers can see it again until 8 April, with two top price tickets for the price of one: telephone the Lyric Theatre Hammersmith box-office on O81-748 9133
