Roundabout presents this farcical play-within-a-play, complete with plates of sardines, semi-dressed ingenues, and slamming doors aplenty. More…
'Noises Off' is a first-rate comedy about a second-rate theatre company staging a third-rate play. The opening night performance of the farce 'Nothing On' is just hours away, and as the cast stumbles through their final dress rehearsal, things couldn't be going any worse. With lines being forgotten, love triangles unraveling and sardines flying everywhere, it’s complete pandemonium before they reach intermission. Can the cast pull their act together on the stage even if they can't behind the scenes?
See it if If you're a fan of the play or love to see fantastic actors truly give it their all;
Don't see it if If you don't like too much slapstick humor or lame jokes; If you want to sympathize with real characters;
See it if You like slap-stick humor and take aspirin first.
Don't see it if You don't like the slap-stick humor with doors slamming constantly. I didn't think it was funny at all.
See it if You don't mind getting thugged around by rude, obnoxious, puerile and ignorant Roundabout staff.
Don't see it if You want to promote the show after it is over and they act like ISIS has arrived if you take out your phone to Tweet a selfie
See it if you love lowbrow humor. This backstage farce about a sex comedy gone wrong has many admirers. But slapstick & raunch are an acquired taste.
Don't see it if farce leaves you cold. Worst part is you see the same scene performed 3 times from 3 different vantage points. That's 3 times too many.
