Imagine This is a musical which recently opened at the New London Theatre. The show is a big schmaltzy West End affair that happens to be set in the Warsaw ghetto in 1942. Aside from some pretty bad reviews - writing for this paper Michael Coveney awarded it one star out of five - the setting of the musical has unsurprisingly caused some controversy. This morning on the Today programme a nice brewhahah broke out with the musical's producer Beth Trachtenberg facing off against the Evening Standard critic Norman Lebrecht.
