First Call, Last Call

TAKE A TRIP back in time and see a performance at the Globe Theatre. It was Sam Wanamaker's idea to restore the theatre and it has been very successful - the previous season's shows sold out. Julius Caesar is first of four productions boasting the excellent Mark Rylance (right) at the directorial helm. Period costumes, all-male casts and live music played on early instruments all lend these productions a powerful sense of the past.

MODERN FUNK STARS Bentley Rhythm Ace, who were a hit at some of last summer's music festivals, will seduce more audiences with their eclectic musical mix in a one-off gig. Drum'n'bass, funk and dance beats are thrown in by the duo, who have a penchant for shades and afro wigs. It will be interesting to see just how the boys who had an irrepressible hit with "The Bentley's Gonna Sort You Out", cope with the recent change at their record label, Skint, which was bought by Sony last year.
