    Londons TheatreUpClose recently announced a new production of A Tale of Two Cities, with a twist. Based on an earlier adaptation by Terence Rattigan and John Gielgud, the play reimagines Dickens dangerous and doomed antihero Sydney Carton as a member of the 27 Club (which includes Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse).

    The 27 Club, in case you didnt already guess, consists of stars who died at the age of twenty-seven (of whom there are a surprising number), usually from drug or alcohol abuse.
