it’s certainly not essex

David Essex is appearing in a show at the Lyceum, Sheffield. I’ve not seen it and pretty sure I won’t. I assume it has some cheery dance scenes, young performers, period music and reflective voice of Now Old David.
The poster announces that the show is “direct from London’s West End” which means what? That it is big but not spectacular enough to stay there?

Why? That is what I thought. Why does he want to rerun this story nearly forty years later?
