Wondering what Danny’s up to at the moment? Wonder no more – he’s directing The House That Nat Built, a production that tells the story of Nat King Cole’s life through his songs. As well as a celebration of his work, it also commemorates the 40th anniversary of his death, on June 3rd.

The tour actually started in March; annoyingly, we didn’t hear of it. Still, there’s plenty of dates left:

Date Venue Box Office
Saturday 28th May Phoenix Arts Centre, Hastings 01424 448200
Friday 3rd June Rhonda McGaw Theatre, Woking 01483 545900

This is all excellent stuff. It’s a pity then that the website is so ridiculously badly-designed. This isn’t just a case of me being an arsey purist – the entire site is made up of images. Quite apart from the other problems this causes – how the hell can someone who is visually impaired read it? It’s especially galling, as I’m sure many such people love Nat King Cole and would love to hear the show. Really bloody ridiculous. Mind you, if anyone can fill out this “form” to join the mailing list, I’d be surprised…
