As popular as P. G. Wodehouse and his creations, suave manservant Jeeves and first-prize twit Bertie Wooster, have been for almost 100 years, they've apparently never toddled onto a West End stage until -- wait for it! -- now.

With two discretionary nights available in London, I asked my favorite expatriot "what's good?" He sent me off to two plays that I very much enjoyed but surely would not have found on my own.

Frankly, it's difficult to understand why Elena Roger was cast. Roger unquestionably does not posses the pipes to sing this part. The entire show is built around what should be the fiery performance at its heart, making this Evita very cool indeed.

The Broadway revival of Evita at the Marquis Theater may have star power, but it lacks sizzle.

This production, a zippy revival of the Tim Rice/Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, is at the Neil Simon Theater. Forty years ago, a rock opera was big news on Broadway, and the pop music and camp elements continue to grab the audience's attention.
