Night owls keen for some extra light-hearted entertainment after the theatre can find West End stars performing in Dead by 12! at the Sound Theatre in Leicester Square at 11.00pm every Thursday night until 13 July 2006. Starry guests, daft games, loose chat and random songs, broadly based on a TV chat show formula with lots of audience interaction, will be hosted by Tim McArthur, Hayden Tee (Les Miserables) and Verity Quade (Jerry Springer - The Opera). Guests include Louise Gold, Simon Greenhill, Kristen Harvey, Vicki Stone, Simon Green, Mark Hutchinson, Rebecca Thornhill, Tracie Bennett and Susannah Fellows. Email kives@lauderdale.org.uk for a weekly round-up. Meanwhile, the cabaret programming at the Prince of Wales’ Delfont Room is set to feature a look at various popular musical theatre composers, including Stephen Sondheim and Jason Robert Brown, running over four consecutive months this autumn. Some big names are promised for the as-yet unconfirmed dates.
