I recently saw Over the Moon and think that whoever wrote the review for WOS is not very fair and whoever wrote the clearly missed the humour in the play. It was bright and funny and Joan Collins was great, as always. - USER: Whatsonstage.com

This is without doubt the most terrible terrible play I've ever seen. Not only Collins but the whole cast was unbearable, and the direction was a mess. Shame for the struggling, beautiful Old Vic that it has to cope with another closure. - USER: Whatsonstage.com

It wasn't so bad. It is hammy old nonsense and the actors ham it up accordingly. There were some good jokes and the performance of Cyrano de Bergerac and Private Lives, all at the same time was pretty entertaining.
That said, as back-stage farces go Noises Off is far far better.
Oh, and why do playwrights always seem to think that the whole world is as fascinated with what goes on in theatres as they are? - USER: Whatsonstage.com

awful???????? i saw it in Bath last week and the show was fantastic - some of the lines are priceless and were delivered brilliantly. all the cast are excellent - especially joan collins and frank langella - revealing that there's far more to them then people give them credit for! as for the audience - we loved it - a superb time!!!

Saw this last night....well, i went expecting to laugh AT Joan Collins, and she didnt dissapoint....she was just terrible.....so over- dramatic......she did well not to bump in to the walls i'll give her that. she was so aware of the audience, and her 'american' accent (???) was truly dire. in scene 1, she comes on in underwear and looks like a frog, in clothes. truly frightening. as is always the case with people like her, she was well and truly upstaged my co- star moira lister who just has to walk on and steal the scene in 3 minutes...... go and see this for a laugh- its quite simply the funniest show on (for the wrong reasons.....) - USER: Whatsonstage.com

Seen at the Yvonne Arnaud, Guildford, under the title Moon Over Buffalo. A really hilarious farce by Ken Ludwig. Joan Collins and Frank Langella are superbly matched as the actor couple looking for their big break, and Moira Lister is absolutely perfect as the conveniently sometimes deaf and sometimes not mother. The pace of the second act is so fast and furious it leaves you in stitches, and the ending is so funny that you can't fail to leave without a smile on your face. - USER: Whatsonstage.com
