Where to start? It's all been said in the press which you can check here.
The women are stunning, the twins are clever. Guy Henry & Ron Cook were side-holdingly ridiculous. It would seem that we were treated to every talent in Zubin Varla's repertoire unless we also discover he is a financial whiz-kid.
A glorious and joyous evening with an attentive and thoroughly entertained audience.
