COMPUTER COMPANIES SPONSORES CULTURAL ARRANGEMENTS

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM United Kingdom Trust, British Olivetti, NCR UK Ltd and Cable & Wireless Plc have all done their bit in the way of sponsorship to get this summer’s season of Shakespeare and music under way in the Open Air Theatre in Regent’s Park: particularly recommended is the rare opportunity to see the youthful and exuberant 1937 Rodgers & Hart show Babes In Arms (forget the movie, they ripped out most of the best songs and stuck in insipid new ones written by the produce), which more than makes up in energy and verve any polish it may lack; even the American accents are a lot better than usual, and the storyline is something of an eye-opener Hart, a dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker, seems to have been trying to reopen the Civil War hostilities.
