First Call, Last Call
Thursday 18 June 1998
STEVEN BERKOFF (right) brings his latest one-man show to the West End. Berkoff will take centre stage with a white spotlight thrust upon his expressive face. He is to explore the darkness in Shakespeare's baddies in "Shakespeare's Villains; a Masterclass in Evil". It should appear less Berkoff miming and more Iago, Mr and Mrs Macbeth and Hamlet all nattering at once.

TICKETS TO see comedian Lee Hurst are selling like mad. The quick-fire comic is best known as the bald one from They Think It's All Over. Hurst's 10 years on the circuit have honed wisecracks and one-liners to side- splitting sharpness. Don't miss out.
