the original one has a lovely spoof programme inside of the ' production'. Why don't they do that kind of thing anymore?
.

Didn't the recent "Noises Off" programme do this?

The recent Old Vic revival of Noises Off did have a fake programme inside the real programme. However ATG, being the cost cutters they are, would never stretch to such a thing. The paper quality has decreased over the past year, prices increased, and soon they'll all be black and white.

I hope you're just joking about the ATG programmes becoming black and white...

Hi, Can somebody who has been to see this tell me the rough running time.

Friends of mine are seeing the matinee a week Saturday and I am meeting them after the show so wanted to get a rough idea of what time to meet them.

Thanks.

S'up Dragononmyback,

I saw this less than a week ago and this was still at 2h 40 I'd say.  It was Acting For Others week though and Rob Brydon spoke for about 5 mimutes it seemed and he was very funny.

I enjoyed this show quite a lot actually.  Was great being in the front row (£10 day seat) and being right next to Brydon as he watched the rehersals from just off stage.
If, for some strange reason you care what I've seen, it's all here:
