Razz’s publicist, Kate, gives a snappy review for your theatre needs…
What? Slapstick ‘carry-on’-esque comedy set in 1960’s Brighton by Richard Bean, based on ‘The Servant of Two Masters’ by Carlo Goldoni. Already a huge success (***** Daily Express, Daily Mail, Guardian, Independent, Sunday Express, Sunday Times, The Sun), it has sold out fast. However, day tickets are still avaliable, including standing seats which at £5 each are a steal for a good view of the stage.
When? This summer, through August to September. For those who cannot get a ticket, there is a live showing coming to cinemas on 15th September.
Where? National Theatre, South Bank, London. SE1 9PX
Who? ‘Gavin and Stacy’ funny man James Corden is the big name and excellent lead, but look out for a hilarious perfomance from ‘Green Wing’ actor Oliver Chris, who plays Stanley, the public school toff, to perfection.
Why? Corden’s interation and improvisation with the audience keeps everyone on their toes. The result is a stand up comedy-like buzz. Highlights in my showing included Corden asking the audence for a sandwich, and actually getting one, alongside spraying a very embarrased lady with a fire extinguisher.
