1. Comedy value
To have a jolly good laugh.
2. The Cast
To see a company of superb comic actors at the top of their game.
To relish the language of one of the great stylists of the English language.
To escape into a fantasy world of blue skies, warm sunlight and happy endings.
To get to know a forgotten British classic.
Dandy Dick is at the Manchester Opera House from 28 August - 1 September.
