MOVING FROM one controversial production to another Charles Dance (right), last seen in Hilary and Jackie, is now to play a professor of literature in 1930s Nazi Germany. CP Taylor's musical comedy, Good, attempts to highlight the plight of the individual within a mass movement. It depicts the consumption of the professor's principles by Nazi policies, and his gradual descent into the throes of fascism. With a strong supporting cast, including Emilia Fox and Ian Gelder.

JUST A few tickets remain for this gig by the superstars of dance music, Underworld. Since their debut album, the snappily titled dubnobasswithmyheadman, the techno duo have helped push UK dance music into the mainstream and spawned many imitators. However, their follow-up album moved away from the crossover tunes that had given them their biggest hit, "Born Slippy", and it will be interesting to see what direction the boys take with their follow-up, Beaucoup Fish, which is due out in March.
