Some guys have all the luck but the protagonist in the latest smash-hit West End musical comedy to stop off in the new city is not one of them.

Tonight’s The Night is inspired by the songs of Rod Stewart and features 25 hit songs – including the signature ‘Do Ya Think I’m Sexy’, ‘Hot Legs’ and ‘Tonight’s The Night’.

The show tells the story of a shy young man named Stu.

He is so tongue-tied he cannot summon the courage to declare his love to the girl of his dreams.

Stu really couldn’t be more different to his hero – the legendary rock ‘n’ roll maestro , Rod Stewart – but one night Stu agrees a trade-off with the Devil, exchanging his soul for Rod’s.

In this all-singing, all-daning celebration of all things Rod, Stu soon discovers that it’s just not possible to find true, lasting love using another man’s moves!

Singer and actress Jade Ewen, you may remember that she represented the UK at the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest but is best known as a member of Sugababes, and Michael McKell, from BBC One’s daytime soap Doctors, are among the cast.

Tonight’s The Night opens at MK Theatre on Monday and continues until Saturday, April 26. Sunday evening at the city theatre sees the return of internationally respected British singer/songwriter Paul Carrack.

He’ll perform songs from his vast catalogue in an unmissable one-off show.

> There will be laughs aplenty at The Stables this evening as stand-up Paul Chowdhry returns.

His intitials may be PC but his gags certainly are not.

An exciting new artist will grace Stage 2 tonight – Ilona has flavours of Shania Twain and Kelly Clarkson.

Seize the chance to experience Elio Pace performing the Billy Joel Songbook on Saturday – or check out Yorksire-bred 20-somethings Holly Taymar and Chris Bilton with Boss Caine on Stage 2.

Tuesday brings Mud Morganfield with his charismatic Chicago blues and natural sense of showmanship.

Mud is blessed with a powerful voice and so too is Tuesday’s Stage 2 artist-singer/songwriter and harpist Georgia Ruth will inspire with her haunting vocals.

More intoxicating songs of love and loss come courtesy of Krystle Warren on Wednesday – hers is an emotional intensity few can match.

Looking ahead Curved Air, with original band members Sonja Kristina and Florian Pilkington-Miksa, play next Friday. Tickets are £22.50
