Starring Stephen Carlile as the world's favorite dog, this highly enjoyable romp through the ups and downs of the lives of a group of cartoon characters runs from Feb. 17 to March 1. Directed and choreographed by Joseph Pitcher and Claire Winsper, Snoopy The Musical could be the ideal antidote to broken tube trains, congestion charges and a looming war. The critics will make their minds up about that on the press night, Feb. 19.
Run by the inimitable Penny Horner, one of the great characters of the London theatre scene, Jermyn Street has become a rival to Pizza on the Park as a cabaret venue, while also maintaining a reputation for successful small-scale musicals (Over My Shoulder, Dorothy Fields Forever) and plays. Snoopy's dog's-eye view of the world from the top of his kennel is the latest show to slip into this 70-seat theatre located on the site of a 1930's nightclub.
