A mere eight weeks have passed since the demise of Michael Jackson and here, inevitably, comes the Fringe's response. Put together with what could be considered indecent haste, this play about the King of Pop's adventures in the afterlife turns out to be a surprisingly polished affair.

Vocals - Johnny Cash and John Lennon
I think if they'd sung together they would have been magic. They're my heroes. They both had fantastic careers but both went through complete reawakenings and had second halves. Cash went on to work with Rubin on American Recordings and Lennon came out of the Beatles and made 'Imagine'. They both did it, then did it again.

Vocals - Stevie Wonder and Steve Winwood

From Samuel Taylor Coleridge to John Lennon, our bards have made a pretty good job of articulating the joys of sleep. But as a nation, it has to be said that we've made a pretty poor fist of acting on their encomia to that blissful state. If sleep is "a gentle thing, beloved from pole to pole", why are we "still yawning" in the middle of the afternoon? A survey has discovered that we are not sleeping enough here in Britain. More than two-thirds of those questioned said they were not getting the recommended eight hours of sleep a night. This must come into that bulging category of surveys which would have provoked more surprise had they yielded the reverse result.
