Considered by many to be the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off reveals the hilarious backstage antics and drama of a group of small-town actors attempting to perform a dreadful flop called Nothing On. This play-within-a-play is a comedic triumph of slamming doors, falling trousers and flying fish. Written by award-winning English novelist and playwright Michael Frayn (Copenhagen, Democracy), this comedy of errors remains a crowd pleaser more than 30 years after its 1982 debut. It was also turned into a film in 1992 starring Michael Caine, Carol Burnett, Christopher Reeve and John Ritter. Learn More

We had a fun night out overall, but the premise of the play was darker than one would expect for a comedy. The main actresses did a great job of portraying their mismatched friendship, but there was far too much emphasis on the disturbing nature of Flo's OCD behavior.
We didn't see the original remake by Neil Simon, but this version of the story really missed the "funny" mark. The only hysteria going on came from Flo after her marital split, and consequent heartache and heartbreak. There wasn't much comedic value from Olive's gal pals becoming overwrought with worry over Flo's possible suicidal ideologies.
There were some laugh-out-loud parts of the play once the "Spaniard brothers" came onto the scene. The language gap -- caused by their thick accents and misused colloquialisms -- was definitely the highlight of the performance.

I love the Morgan-Wixson theater, and have been thrilled by many of its presentations. The script for this Odd Couple was superb. The move from male to female oriented humor was, I think, superb and appealing to men and women alike. ...continued
