Vaudeville, WC2 (0171-836 9987) 23 Feb-14 MarReuse content
The Vaudeville has been the focus of much critical praise of late, with the Right Size's brilliantly silly show Do You Come Here Often? This is set to continue with the venue's latest incumbent, David Benson's award- winning Think No Evil of Us: My Life With Kenneth Williams finally receiving its long-awaited West End transfer. For those who haven't seen the show, which has toured the UK, Benson recreates the life of the entertainer, blending in some of his own childhood experiences. Though the two never actually met, in a bizarre twist, a 13-year-old Benson had his prize-winning story, The Rag and Bone Man, read by Williams on Jackanory. As our theatre critic, David Benedict, wrote: "Benson's startling performance is much more than a (brilliant) act of impersonation. Fascinating, unexpected and engrossing." There are only 20 performances in this season, which marks the 10th anniversary of Williams's death. You have been warned.
