MTAS Member Ceri Davies reviews Sunny Afternoon for @MTAS_Official

Seeing as I live round the corner from Muswell Hill, where they’re from, and share a surname with the two brothers in the band, I thought it was about time I went to see the winner of the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Musical, Sunny Afternoon at the Harold Pinter Theatre, and TodayTix’s offer this week was too good to refuse. 1,049 more words

The Kinks: Kinkdom (1965)
