    Press Review 4Louise Levene, Financial Times, Tuesday 1 July 2014Performance 27 & 28 June 2014

    Pita’s constant shifts of mood and pace, sweetly reinforced by Frank Moon’s swingtime score, are proof of his choreographic versatility. The first act of the two-and-a-half-hour mini-marathon celebrates the novelty steps of the 1920s and 30s, but the second uses his …
