Falling trousers, star-crossed lovers, cross-dressing mobsters and a fabulous on-stage band are just some of what awaits at the funniest comedy/musical to cross the pond in decades. Directed by Tony and Olivier Award winner Nicholas Hytner, and 15 "skiffle" songs by Grant Olding performed by The Craze, this side-splitting show with all the great London actors arrives at the Music Box Theatre on Broadway on April 15, 2012 straight from a sold-out run in London's West End.

It's a lively, engaging, rousing, inventive musical mix. The styles are clever and fresh and toe-tapping good. The lyrics and themes of the songs are clever double-entendres that reflect (but do not exactly mirror) themes of the show, which makes for fun, universally themed music that's a blast to listen to.
It's hard to describe the styles. Skiffle has the raw energy and invention of, say, the early Beatles in Germany, before they made it big. The sound is addicting, and energetic. And although skiffle is known for being the music of the street, the extreme skill and polished professionalism of these fine musicians clearly shines through. So it's the best of both worlds: like the raw energy of a street performance, but with amazing tunes, clever lyrics, and the very best musicians.
Once again, I wish I can watch it again, SOON!!!!!
