John Clark

This is a great stage interpretation of the old Ealing comedy, John Gordon Sinclair is excellent as Professor Marcus as is Chris McCalphy as One Round. Personally I thought the set was brilliant and very imaginative, both my wife and I thouroughly enjoyed the show and would recommend it.

This was the worst production i have ever seen in the west end. Im amaised that this even exists. I was looking at my watch the whole time and left at intermission. I would pay not to sit through this again. The acting was poor and the jokes were cheap.

Took my girlfriend and we both thoroughly enjoyed this. The stage and set were cleverly pieced together without being over the top. The last half an hour dragged somewhat but up until then I thought it was very funny and the eclectic array of characters make it!

Don't bother. I really looked forward to this--I loved the old Ealing comedy & I think Graham Linehan is one of the funniest writers on earth. I wasn't counting on the director & half the cast not knowing the difference between projecting and bellowing incomprehensibly (try, if you're masochistic enough, to imagine an actor bellowing at the top of his lungs in a fake Romanian accent!) . Yes, I KNOW it's the Vaudeville Theatre so the director presumably thought everything should be played broadly enough that any three-year old in the audience would know when something was SUPPOSED to be funny, but the result was boring, & I left with a bit of a headache.
