Noises Off, widely considered the funniest farce ever written, reveals the hilarious backstage happenings during rehearsals and performances of a play dubbed Nothing's On. Award-winning English novelist and playwright Michael Frayn's (Copenhagen, Democracy) comedy is a triumph of slamming doors, falling trousers and even flying sardines, and it remains crowd-pleasing more than 30 years after its 1982 debut. Watch a manic menagerie of itinerant actors as they try to stitch together a sex comedy that's a sure flop, as out-of-control egos, memory loss and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure.

Beware: When turning right after walking down the entrance hall there is a small ramp-style step in the floor, leading to a slightly higher floor level. This adjustment is not signed or lit with glowing strips. I tripped on this unexpected rise, and a second member of my party tripped and fell down. A lawsuit waiting to happen! The stairs leading down to the bar are dim as well and need glowing strips to guide the theatergoers.Noises Off info • Aug 31 2014 star this tip starred

This was my first exposure to Chekhov and I'm not sure I'm a Chekhov person. I think I should've started with a more traditional production. As noted, this is avante garde and a 'radical adaptation'. I felt a little lost (make sure to read the playbill at intermission to see what happens in the missing acts) and a bit overwhelmed by the multimedia aspect. Enjoyed several of the performers. I will investigate other Three Sisters to compare and contrast now.

See or read the original before adventuring into any "modern" adaptations of this play. The acting was weak and the flow of Acts was frustrating (some were on video and some were acted out live). Video quality was extremely poor.
Acts were oddly...continued
