That’s it for the comedy gigs, but here are some more events on Friday 6 April in London:

Yayoi Kusama exhibition6 AprilYayoi Kusama is probably best-known for her repeating dot patterns. Since 1977 this intriguing artist has spent much of her life living in a psychiatric institution, and her work has been touched by obsession and a desire to escape from psychological trauma.

Draw Your Weapons: The Art of Commando Comics6 AprilThis explosive exhibition features some of the best covers and illustrations from 50 years of the “Commando” comic series. “Draw Your Weapons: The Art of Commando Comics” will explore the history of the comic from its very first issue, through to its heroic subject matter and its enduring popularity.

“Blood Brothers”, at the Phoenix Theatre6 April“Blood Brothers” has been packing them into the West End for two decades now. It tells the story of a single mum who is forced to give away one of her new-born twin sons after she can’t afford to keep him. Despite growing up on opposite side of the tracks their lives become hopelessly enmeshed, and ultimately end in tragedy.

War photographs by Don McCullin6 AprilDon McCullin is recognised as one of Britain’s greatest war photographers. “Shaped By War” is a major new exhibition which explores both his life and work, and includes over 200 of his finest photographs, many which have not been seen in public.

“Long Day’s Journey Into Night”, with David Suchet6 AprilDavid Suchet will be starring in Eugene O’Neill’s great American play “Long Day’s Journey Into Night”. It tells the story of James Tyrone (Suchet), Mary and their sons, during a long hot summer’s day.

Tyne Daly in “Master Class” — about Maria Callas6 April“Master Class” tells the story of iconic opera singer Maria Callas. Tyne Daley (of “Cagney and Lacey” fame) takes the role of the legendary diva, whose turbulent love life and fiery temperament led to much self-sacrifice and heartache.

“The Recruiting Officer” — Donmar Warehouse6 April“The Recruiting Officer” is an exploration of love, lustiness and victory — in battle and in the bedroom. Captain Plume is given the job of recuiting men for the King’s army, and tempts them with the promise of money, glory and adventure. But he’s also determined to win the heart of Sylvia — a wealthy heiress who can afford to put him to the test.

“She Stoops to Conquer”, at the National Theatre6 April“She Stoops To Conquer” tells the story of Hardcastle, who’s trying to introduce his eligable daughter to his old friend’s son. But his son is crippled with shyness when it comes to wooing the upper classes, and he is tricked into thinking his prospective father-in-law is an old innkeeper, and his daughter is a barmaid.

Eifman Ballet, performing Tchaikovsky’s “Onegin”6 AprilBoris Eifman’s retelling of “Onegin” fuses Tchaikovsky’s classical score with Sitkovetsky’s contemporary rock, and tells of the passion that Tatiana has for the charismatic Onegin, in a devastatingly poignant depiction of unrequited love.
