That was the funniest scene in the NT production of it with Michael Gambon.
Just based on the reviews this seems a bit ponderous - I'm not sure Trev can really direct comedies written after about 1900, has he ever directed one before ?

He sings rather well on I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue.

I decided this would be one of my "book, know nothing about it, see how it goes" visits. When I booked the only thing I knew was the title and the fact a certain comedian named Rob was in it (somehow everything else completely escaped me). As some of you know, I am very involved in amateur theatre, so this worked out very well in the end!
There were remarkable scenes which I have seen played out for real before, the mis-patched lighting, two people trying to have an important conversation when aiding lighting, crew/cast fighting (not quite to this extent, mind) etc. It rang extraordinarily true
If I were to pick fault, some of the early scenes felt very shakey - the bar scene jarred against any real pub, with any attempt at realism taking a hit to allow the audience to see what's going on. Surprising as no other scene suffered with the problem of feeling badly set up.
Might well try to visit again.
It does have similarities, definitely.

Sat row B 1&2 right at the end behind the loud music and behind Brydon! Should have been told on website maybe? Ah well, didn't affect enjoyment.
