Olivier nominee Gavin Spokes’ Nicely-Nicely Johnson is now joined by Jason Pennycooke’s dazzlingly elastic Benny Southstreet, making a comic and musical treat of the title song.
Gavin Spokes and Jason Pennycooke make an eccentric and captivating duo as Nicely Nicely Johnson and Benny Southstreet; indeed, Pennycooke is the brightest and most idiosyncratic Benny this production has seen, alternating between camp humour and furtive lewdness with calm and measured aplomb. Their duet of the title song is the true highpoint of Act One.
