Faulty Towers The Dining Experience (Interactive Theatre International)

By | Published on Saturday 10 August 2013

Most definitely an ‘experience’: far from fancy, but you can’t fault the fun! Working wonderfully together, the three actors uncannily nailed their character’s mannerisms, transporting the audience straight into the legendary TV series. Would you believe there are still so many ways for Manuel to get it wrong? Original hilarity, improvisation and personal insults kept it fresh – it would be better if they’d kept this up more in the show’s second half, but then it wouldn’t be complete without a recreation of the classic moments.  Despite gritted teeth at the German gags, B’est restaurant was buzzing. With a three-course meal, Fawlty fans will find a recipe for a fabulous night out. My only warning is don’t get too comfortable – disaster can erupt at any moment!

B’est Restaurant, until 27 Aug (not 10, 17, 24) 2.00pm, 8.00pm.
