What a busy weekend!

With shows at Fringe World, Adelaide Fringe and Amba Hotel Charing Cross in London, the Faulty Towers team was on fire! The first reviews for Adelaide Fringe came in and we also got some great feedback and reviews on our Facebook page and Tripadvisor! Valentine’s Day brought on a few surprises too!

At Adelaide Fringe:
Our intrepid heroes survived Friday 13th in the spectacular Fringe parade, and we opened our month at the Fringe on Saturday. Audiences took every opportunity to congratulate an adoring Basil and Sybil on a very Faulty Valentine’s Day.

We’ve had some great reviews coming out of Fringe World Perth!

Some of our audience reviews are on Facebook. And here’s what a couple of our media critics have said…

from Buzzcuts:
‘ … the unmistakable physicality and distinctive voices are flawless from all three actors, impressively maintained throughout the highly improvised performance. Laughter is guaranteed… Whether a food or theatre lover, Fawlty quoter or newcomer, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is top nosh, guaranteed to leave you with a belly full of food, and a belly full of laughs.’ Read the full review here.

and from The West Australian:

‘…if you neglect to make it down to Rigby’s Bar and Bistro while the international touring Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is in town you’ll be sure to have missed out…’

We’re there until 22 Feb, so come and join the fun at Rigby’s Bar and Bistro!
