London Essentials: October 2010

Phil Stocker orders another round of London treats. For theatre in the West End, look for the political stinger Yes, Prime Minister at the Gielgud Theatre, adapted from a popular BBC series and starring David Haig. Music picks: Two Door Cinema Club now touring their album Tourist History in the States, dubstep artist Magnetic Man touring the UK now, and Jamaica from Paris (formerly Pony Pony) a bit yacht rock, if you like. And for shopping and espresso with character, off busy Oxford Street, check out RD Franks on Winsley Street, a fashion, book, and magazine shop since 1877. (9 minutes)
