      Event: Sheridan Smith stars as Fanny Brice

      Location: Savoy Theatre, WC2

      Pitch perfect funny girl Sheridan Smith has been universally lauded for her portrayal of Fanny Brice, a role more-or-less owned by Barbra Streisand up till now.

      The musical has transferred to the West End from fringe venue the Menier Chocolate Factory, where it had a sold-out run at the end of last year.

      Funny Girl is the semi-biographical story of Fanny Brice, an actress and comedienne from New York’s Lower East Side, who became one of Broadway’s biggest stars in the early part of the last century. Her story is a rollercoaster journey of a woman pulled between a successful career and a doomed love life.

      Event: Theatre: Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus

      Location: Duke of York’s Theatre, WC2

      Dr Faustus, Christopher Marlowe’s classic 400-year-old tale about the cost of wealth, power and fame, is getting a new look from the Jamie Lloyd Company.

      Kit Harington stars as the tragic hero, Faustus. He is best known to Game of Thrones fans as Jon Snow, but has appeared on the West End stage in the original cast of War Horse and Laura Wade’s Posh at the Royal Court in 2010. Jenna Russell co-stars in the role of the demon Mephistopheles, usually played by a man.

      Event: Film Events 2016: Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later

      Location: Secret London Location

      Danny Boyle’s zombie apocalypse film 28 Days Later is being given the fully immersive Secret Cinema treatment this spring, showing in a secret location in London.

      The film begins with Jim (Cillian Murphy) waking from a coma in post-apocalyptic London to discover that he’s completely alone, the hospital he’s a patient at (St Thomas’s, opposite the Houses of Parliament) deserted, the city eerily quiet. A deadly virus has turned everybody into the walking — or running — dead and society as we know it has completely collapsed. It is one of cinema’s iconic scenes when he steps out of the hospital into a deserted London (the scene was filmed over a number of days very early in the morning in the summer before 9/11 – the film came out the following year).

      Event: Sicily: Culture and Conquest

      Location: British Museum, WC1

      Sicily has long been a meeting point in the Mediterranean, conquered and reconquered by successive cultures, from the Phoenicians to the Normans.

      The largest island in the Mediterranean, geographically strategic, and with extremely fertile lands (thanks to the still-active volcano Mount Etna), the island has attracted settlers for 4,000 years. The Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans have all ruled over Sicily during its long and turbulent history.

      Event: Elegy at the Donmar Warehouse 2016

      Location: Donmar Warehouse, WC2

      Nick Payne’s Constellations wowed audiences when it played at the Royal Court in 2012, going on to the West End and Broadway and winning the Evening Standard award for best play. Now he’s back at the Donmar Warehouse with the world premiere of his new play Elegy, set in a near future, which wonders what would happen if we understood everything about the workings of the human brain.
