LONDON - Among the great mysteries of England there is Stonehenge, the large assortment of cut stones that for centuries has confounded archaeologists, astrologers, astronomers, historians and theologians - all of whom have researched the grounds and after thoughtful contemplation developed detailed theories of how the configuration came to be and just what spiritual, scientific or humanistic significance it might possess. Then there is the true great mystery of England: Marmite spread.

First of all, how perfect was it to make Roger the first "Mad Men" character to trip on LSD?

Richard Crawley as Nanki-Poo and Jennifer Davison as Yum-Yum were vocally impressive but a little cold on stage.
