It seems live theatre is getting better and better in Dubai at the moment. Cult musical Blood Brothers is playing at the First Group Theatre (but only until February 6, so catch it quick) and now Ductac brings us One Small Step, which has garnered rave reviews since debuting at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2008.
