Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at the Savoy Theatre London This is a lovely smaller theatre with good spacing between rows and a clear view from the stalls as the stage is not raised too high. The walls looked freshly painted in shimmering old-gold and the doors are leather padded and studded in red. It is 3 floors down to the stalls from street level, but just in case you need it, there is a bar around every bend in the corridor! Extortionate prices for a glass of wine, of course, at £7.80 but you can take it into the auditorium with you (in a plastic glass).
I paid £39.50 for a ticket, bought on the evening at the booking office, in a good position on Row K. It is a song and dance show with some surprisingly good performances (in this context) from Robert Lindsay, Rufus Hound and the daft policeman from Doc Martin! It was entertaining and enjoyable with excellent performances from supporting players and an interesting stage set. I loved the bit where they were discussing their previous night’s drunken escapades, leaning against a balcony that was slowly sinking out of sight – “is this balcony moving or is it me…?” she asked. It was worth seeing and the audience all seemed to enjoy it.
