Infidel The Musical
David Baddiel book and lyrics, Erran Baron Cohen music,
additional material by Arvind Ethan David
"Stratford East has always maintained its gorgeous traditional scarlet and gilt, along with its onstage iconoclasm. The Infidel – the Musical is its best tribute for ages to Joan Littlewood’s theatre. It’s bawdy. The risks it takes are real. It has, without being po-faced, a healing purpose. Actually, there has not been anything since Jerry Springer – the Opera that targeted religious zealots so exuberantly. Unless you count The Book of Mormon, which I don’t, thinking it plenty rude and finely drilled but toothless"
