Hey, the 100% subscribed-to Summer Series At Somerset House flings wide its gates this evening. If you have tickets to tonight’s Alex Clare-headlined show, or any latter nights feat Jessie Ware, Goldfrapp, Richard Hawley and First Aid Kit, congratulations, have a great time! If not, fear not, because as ever, there are equally great times to be had elsewhere in the capital tonight…


Andy Zaltzman’s Political Animal, Udderbelly Southbank, 11 Jul
Rearing his political head again in an extra comic treat milked from the Udderbelly’s life-giving teat, the ThreeWeeks-rated Andy Zaltzman is primed to harass, harangue and satirise every parliamentary hack in sight. Details and tickets here.

The Peculiar Case Of Hemsley And Todd, Canal Cafe Theatre, 11 Jul
Both bright and prizewinning young things in their own right, Bath New Act Of The Year Harriet Kemsley and Amused Moose victor Richard Todd appear as one (one double act, that is) to share mirth and hilarity based on their strangest inadequacies. Details and tickets here.


Coppelia, London Coliseum, 11-14 Jul (pictured)
Dance’s most wanted ‘bad boy’ (or so sensationalise the tabs), Sergei Polunin, takes principal billing in the Moscow Stanislavsky co’s six-show spin on Roland Petit’s fantasy ballet circa 1975. Spooky toymakers, life-sized dolls, anti-gravitational leaps and lots of marionette-like twirling are all on tonight’s ‘Coppelia’ bingo list. Details and tickets here.
