The 70s compilation musical Oh What a Night has extended its limited run at the Apollo Hammersmith by five weeks. The show, which opened at the 3,500-seat venue on 5 August (following previews from 27 July), will now close on 16 October 1999.

Oh What a Night stars soap stars Will Mellor and John Altman along with 80s pop star Kid Creole. Mellor, best known as Jambo in TV's teen soap Hollyoaks, plays Rik, a young English wannabe pop star in New York, who runs up against baddie bar manager Rocco, played by Altman, who is also well known to British television audiences as bad boy Nick Cotton in EastEnders.

The musical features a slew of 70s disco classics including 'Celebration', 'YMCA', 'Love Train', 'Blame It on the Boogie', 'Car Wash', 'Disco Inferno', 'When I Need You' and 'Ladies Night'. It is choreographed by Kim Gavin, a former choreographer of pop group Take That, who also directs.
