Sunshine in January

There seemed to be enough of a buzz about Sunshine on Leith, Stephen Greenhorn's musical using the songs of the Proclaimers, to justify writing about it now even though it doesn't open until April. My article was in yesterday's Scotland on Sunday. A bit like the National Theatre of Scotland's stage version of Tutti Frutti, it's one of those ideas that seems so right, you can't imagine why no one's ever thought of it before. Greenhorn told me he was acutely aware of that sense of expectation, making it all the more important for them to get it right.
