In fact, it wasn't long after the Second World War when Forever Crazy first began teasing audiences. In the six decades or so since, Forever Crazy has blossomed into an artistic masterpiece, casting ten beautiful classically trained dancers in the sensual nightly worship of femininity and the "celebration of the inexhaustible subject of womanhood".
Such extravagance and downright opulence requires special surroundings and London audiences will be treated to the comfort of a luxurious purpose-built venue on the Southbank, behind the National Theatre, setting the lavish spectacle against a backdrop of eye-catching visual effects and stunning lighting.
The lights will go down for the first time on Tuesday 18 September running until Saturday, 22 December 2012. We have tickets available now, priced from £35.
