Since her 2004 London debut at the Spitz, Regina Spektor has caused a right old crush at larger and larger venues, from Bush Hall to the Islington Academy and now this, her biggest UK performance to date. And yet the Moscow-born, New York-based anti-folk singer has not released a jot of new material since 2004's marvellous, funny and emotive Soviet Kitsch (her latest, Mary Ann Meets the Grave Diggers and Other Stories being comprised of previously released "hits"). For the unconverted, this show is an ample introduction to a voice that rips between mesmerising power and honey-tinged, girlish entreaty, animating the slice-of-life stories of her lyrics with theatrical gusto.
