If it's a challenge you're after, don't bother — you'll find more high kicks than high-brow in this production. Those willing to be entertained will find that, after the initial horror, they've been grinnning from ear to ear. And it lasts for three hours. ——————————————————————————————————1/5—— by Rachel Delahaye TICKETMASTER 24HR CREDIT CARD HOTLINE 0990 34 44 44 FOR YOUR THEATRE NEEDS West End A-G H-N O-Z Millennium

Ticket information 0171 8368888 For lovers of the '70s, it doesn't get any better than this. The storyline is riddled with colourful renditions of songs such as Le Freak and Car Wash. Okay, so the plot is a washout, but if you're not there for the lvsic, you shouldn't be there at all. Comparable to Grease, there's disco dancing and adolescent agues, although the innuendo and language l—y be a bit too graphic for younger ears. ——————————————————————————————————2/5—— Meet Lesley Garrett: Part 2 451 TICKETMASTER 24HR CREDIT CARD HOTLINE 0990 34 44 44 FOR YOUR THEATRE NEEDS West End A-G H-N O-Z Millennium

Ticket information 0171 8368888 Besides the tack, which is plentiful but all rather tongue-in-cheek anyway, there are hints of comic genius. Sharp dialogue and observational comedy outweigh obvious shortcomings in moral integrity and dramatic originality. The cast, the script and the music provide a platform for the talent of its leading man, Shane Richie. And he's no heel. ——————————————————————————————————3/5—— Meet Lesley Garrett: Part 2 451 TICKETMASTER 24HR CREDIT CARD HOTLINE 0990 34 44 44 FOR YOUR THEATRE NEEDS West End A-G H-N O-Z Millennium

Ticket information 0171 8368888 If you had Richie pigeon-holed as king of kitsch game shows and TV ads, you may find you've tagged the wrong man. Richie, a writer and associate producer of the show, comes out of this whiter than white with his incredible stage presence and powerful voice. But in no way is it self-indulgent — the crowd is encouraged to join in, and does. So leave your coats and your dignity at the door, get down and, well, boogie! ——————————————————————————————————4/5—— Meet Lesley Garrett: Part 2 451 TICKETMASTER 24HR CREDIT CARD HOTLINE 0990 34 44 44 FOR YOUR THEATRE NEEDS West End A-G H-N O-Z Millennium
