CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.


Simply Heavenly archiveWritten in 1957, Simply Heavenly was born out of a series of short stories featuring Jess B Semple's bar room philosophy on life, love and the pursuit of the easy way. An offbeat Harlem everyman living in a rapidly changing America, Simple became Hughes's most enduring character expressing the everyday victories of an ordinary hero. Simply Heavenly first ran on Broadway in 1957, giving a voice through humour and song to the African American experience. With gentle satire, insightful ramblings and street-wise humour Hughes chronicled the hopes and despair of black America.

Author Langston Hughes. Lyrics Langston Hughes. Music David Martin.
