Thursday 10 July

A chorus of dissent

Wednesday 9 July

In an effort to update a classic, musical maestro Andrew Lloyd Webber is shoehorning rap music into a new production of his stage show ‘Cats’. Just another example of unnecessary modernisation, says Monocle’s Dan Poole.

Mungojerrie, Rumpleteazer and the ever-magical Mr Mistoffelees must be curious, despite the well-known dangers such a stance poses for their species. “Why,” the stars of hit musical Cats will be (cautiously) wondering, “has…

We’d rather bicycles than balls

Tuesday 1 July

M24’s Tom Edwards concedes that the Tour de France has had its image problems but argues that the sport has made more progress than football when it comes to swerving gross commercialisation.

The Tour de France is the greatest annual sporting event in the world. This week the 101st edition of the classic cycle road race begins not in France but in Yorkshire, right here in England, against the beautiful backdrop…

A home win

Friday 27 June

The unpredicted success of Brazil’s staging of the World Cup means the nation’s citizens are currently riding a wave. Monocle’s Fernando Augusto Pacheco looks at why it’s a case of so far, so good.

I don’t want to sound smug about it – but we did it. After an incredible barrage of negative coverage, everybody was expecting carnage during the World Cup in Brazil including many of my fellow Brazilians. But what we’ve…
