Theatre: I don't go much. I never got taken when I was young and it still feels a bit of an alien experience. I did, however, see 'Hair' in the West End recently, which I thought was great, and 'Red' on Broadway, which had some brilliant acting in it but dramatically was simply Rothko's essays put into dialogue.

Judging by the nine-picture deal which Samuel L Jackson has apparently signed to reprise the Iron Man films' eyepatch-wearing superspy Nick Fury, the appetite for US superhero films isn't expected to die down soon, with outings for Kenneth Branagh's Thor, Captain America and The Avengers also in the pipeline.

Matthew Vaughn's cartoonishly violent action comedy takes off from an interesting premise: you cannot dispense justice in a corrupt society if you don't wear the right clobber. It is perhaps a sign of the times that your average teen no longer considers being "a hero" good enough. Nowadays the only thing for it is to be a superhero, and if you can't be one, then act like one. This can-do attitude is what makes the first half-hour of Kick-Ass such a blast.

Will the troublemaker who is going around saying that leftie pin-up economist Will Hutton has a butler please desist? There is talk that the former newspaper editor, now chief exec of the Work Foundation think-tank (more employee satisfaction means higher productivity), has his door answered by a Jeeves-like fellow in tails. There would be no shame in that: the old school gentleman's gentleman has returned to the sculleries of high society, particularly for occasional party nights, to ferry trays and seat guests.
