A re-working of the 1973 show that delighted audiences when it played in Regents Park in 1994. Adapted from the celebrated novel by Arnold Bennett, this is the lively tale of a pushy young opportunist in a Potteries town in the early 1900s. Denry Machin, a go-getting personality with disarmingly sharp practices that enable him to win over local 'society', outwit influential rivals, sort out his romantic entanglements and make himself mayor. A very funny show with catchy songs, including Moving On, How Do and Typical Machin. 'Outstanding' **** (BroadwayBaby.com on 2010's Secret Garden).
