Women’s Soccer Musical: Goooooo-aaaaL!

Just in time for the women’s World Cup, being played in Canada, a new musical about the sport has opened to rave reviews in London. It’s “Bend It Like Beckham,” based on the much-liked 2002 movie of the same title. The Independent says: ‘Natalie Dew (pictured) is wonderfully winning and pure-voiced as Jess, the Southall teenager caught between her desire to excel at soccer and the expectations of her tradition-bound Sikh family.’ Can’t wait to see this show — no word yet of a possible New York transfer.
