Charming, delectable, delicious. And those are just the custard creams... It's not often I get offered biscuits at the post-show Q&As I chair, but at a show called The Ministry of Biscuits, it would have seemed remiss not to.

I've been following the insanely talented improv geniuses of The Showstoppers for most of their eleven years. How do they do it? I still can't really fathom it, but I was pleased to gain a few more insights - and a new well of admiration - after chairing a post-show Q&A with them this week.

Swift but swinging! We had less than twenty minutes for last night's post-show Q&A for new musical Looking for Gatsby but - taking a leaf out of this incredible company's book - we made the most of it. It's amazing how much you can ground you can cover when you're up against the clock!
