As a big fan of both series, "Yes Minister" and "Yes Prime Minister" I was keeping my fingers crossed that this would be an updated romp through a similar playground. The good news is that it completely delivers the smart witty political satire. ...continued

People (including me) just laughed and laughed and laughed at this thing from start to finish. Is it the single most sophisticated play in the history of theater? Not particularly. Did the ensemble turn it into a spectacular farce that just,...continued

This is the best-written, and best-acted, play we've seen in a LONG while: thoroughly engaging, intelligently presented and completely entertaining, not to mention funny and witty as hell! I certainly hope that it finds its way to Broadway after...continued

First, the Geffen Playhouse is a terrific and intimate venue. Really no bad seats and the seats are very comfortable. Ok, Yes Prime Minister is a funny (cheeky) comedy that plays up the asinine workings of government. A nice satire on the...continued

It's not often that one has the privilege of seeing a production of extremely talented actors enjoying their craft and delivering a stellar performance at the same time. We loved the dialog, and the story of politics, sex and deceit. Dakin...continued

I had a great time. Witty, fast paced dialogue, great performances. Clever ideas.
A wonderful satire. And we had good seats too!

A very funny and trenchant first-act, whose promise is not quite fulfilled in the second-act. Even so, its jaded take on both US and British politicking is entertaining and, unfortunately, to the point.

Terrific courageous performances. It's great to see such intelligent theater bold enough to look at the absurdities of our politicians and bureaucrats. The humor was terrific. The performances by the cast outstanding. The only sad part is that the...continued

A quality play, like London usually offers. I might even go back and see it again! Constant laughs among the "real" problems of politics the regular people never get to see.

Loved this play! You really have to listen to the actors to appreciate all the great lines. The writing is great and most of the acting was top notch. The only downside of the evening was the comical "Wine Down Sunday" that the Geffen offered....continued
