We had the pleasure of being in the front row for the closing night of
High Society at the end of Kevin Spacey’s 11-year-run as artistic director of the Old Vic on Saturday night.
5. The soundtrack
A confession: we’ve loved the soundtrack since we bought it after
Kinky Boots, which is in previews at the Adelphi Theatre from 21/8, won six Tonys in 2013. Hold Me In Your Heart (You Tube clip above) is the showstopper Whitney should’ve recorded. But there’s so much more to the soundtrack than that.
