Yes, I've not been reading great things about her so I think I'll take your advice!

I saw this show this afternoon. It wasn't very full. Though I enjoyed it, I didn't think it was as funny as all the paper reviews have led me to expect.

Mainly I didn't like the actors's performances.  I didn't think some of them's acting quite clicked.  The son's voice was particularly irritating (and his hair style).

However, I was very happy to find a renowned former Mdm Tenardier (Les Miz) playing Dudith's dresser-come-maid.

Also, I liked the idea of this play itself. I especially liked the ending where all the guests had to sneak out and the family members saying they were rude.

LOL, the son was one of my favourites. (Mother & daughter were my top two.) But then he reminded me of someone I knew years ago, so maybe that was it. ;)

(Although as far as "particularly irritating" goes - I think that may have been the desired effect!)

But can't they be irritating in a more pleasing way? Like amusingly irritating rather than I-want-to-punch-you irritating?

Haha. I see your point. But the son (sorry, forget his name) was *supposed* to be I-want-to-punch-you irritating at points, I think. He was deliberately being a git to his family. xD

Like I said, I mostly found him amusing-irritating, though. Guess it depends on the person.
