Why See Noises Off?
The much-loved comedy farce arrives in Philadelphia
With the US premiere of British smash hit, The Play That Goes Wrong hitting Broadway this year, the Walnut Street Theatre is bringing another comedy farce show to its stage, that is guaranteed to hit your funny bone! From a disastrous dress rehearsal where the cast fumble their entrances and exits, to bothersome props and a final performance of missed cues and forgotten lines, Noises Off is a side-splitting piece of comedy theatre that explores the explosive personal relationships which lead to off-stage shenanigans - and on-stage bedlam! If you've ever seen amateur dramatics in action, this will definitely speak to you....
Noises Off first premiered in 1982 at the Lyric Hammersmith in London, UK. After receiving strong reviews, it transferred to the Savoy Theatre in the West End, where it ran until 1987, winning both an Evening Standard Theatre Award and an Olivier Award (The British equivalent of the Tony), before opening on Broadway in 1983 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. 2016 saw Michael Frayn's much-loved comedy revived by Roundabout Theatre Company, starring Tony-winner Andrea Martin (Pippin, Young Frankenstein), Rob McClure and Meghan Hilty.
Opening night: 13 March 2018
