Back in 1963 he was stage manager on another underrated musical: 110 in the Shade, based on the play and film The Rainmaker. Now you and Mackintosh have the opportunity to rediscover this neglected work in the "Lost Musicals" season. Director Ian Marshall Fisher and Chicago MD Gareth Valentine have assembled an excellent cast, including Louise Gold and Michael Matus, for performances on the next four Sundays. But those of you too busy to go can take heart: That's Entertainment Records have added this delightful score to their collection.
`110 in the Shade', Fortune Theatre, London WC2 (0171-836 2238) 4, 11, 18, 25 Jul at 3.30pm
