What does it take to run for seven years in London’s West End? This is it. A terrific classical farce, complete with mistaken identities, secrets covered up and uncovered, frustrated infidelity and fallen soufflés. Marc Camoletti, whose Boeing-Boeing was a hit revival on Broadway last season, has given the audience a fast-paced and continuously intriguing classic in this play, that London reviewer Sheila Tracy called, “the most hilarious two hours I have spent in any theatre.” The Chicago Sun Times said it was “pure giddy pleasure” and the Dallas Morning News added it was “laugh-out loud funny.” Don’t miss this wonderful farce.
