Josie Rourke leaves the Donmar with a blast with SWEET CHARITY, a production full of intelligence and energy. Anne-Marie Duff is sensational, and Adrian Lester is 🔥🔥🔥.

Pete Doherty is on Loose Ends, so I imagine Gen Y listeners feel the way I did the first time I heard Smells Like Teen Spirit on an oldies station.

Happy 91st birthday to the brilliant and funny Tom Lehrer, who remarked in 2002, "Things I once thought were funny are scary now. I often feel like a resident of Pompeii who has been asked for some humorous comments on lava." Thank you for 66 years of timeless satirical humor!
