Great staging, Funny, Clever

See it if You love slapstick humour. Silly is entertaining. You appreciate comic timing. You don't want to think, just laugh.

Don't see it if You want something serious or at least intellectually clever. You don't like slapstick comedy. You find find British farce unwatchable.

Clever, Masterful, Refreshing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you love magic or love to be amazed. I have been to many magic shows, and magic wise this is one of the best

Don't see it if the magic alone is not good enough for you. The presentation here is good, but the magic makes the impossible actually happen

Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if You love revivals with two great male performances and a female lead who is good enough. The score makes you leave the theatre humming.

Don't see it if You are thinking "been there, done that". The staging is very creative, but some will suggest that little else is.

Also please stay to the end and then we can talk about it afterwards.
