SOME GIRL I USED TO KNOW, Monday to Wednesday, New Alexandra Theatre, Birmingham, 0844 871 3011.

DENISE Van Outen has turned to writing to produce her own one-woman musical. She plays Stephanie, a woman with a successful career and supportive husband. But one night, while staying in a hotel on business, she gets a Facebook poke from her first love. All the old memories come flooding back, including songs from the 1980s and 90s from the likes of Culture Club and Soft Cell, and with the memories come new temptations. The show also plays Wolverhampton's Grand Theatre for three nights from February 20. ? SWAN LAKE, Today - February 15, Birmingham Hippodrome, 0844 338 5000.
