Another sold-out run for Basil, Sybil and Manuel, this time at the luscious Mount Lavinia Hotel (Paul O’Neill, Geoffrey Reczek and Karen Hamilton with a charming porter).
Read a Q&A in the Sunday Times here:
Our debut week at Sydney Opera House was a sell-out and many of our guests wrote great reviews on twitter and facebook. Australian Traveller magazine has published a great review too, calling the show ‘a hilarious battle of wits, patience, fire extinguishers and fine food.. distinctly hilarious’. Click here for the full review.
We’re already planning our return so sign up for the newsletter and hear about it the minute we have the dates.
This week Groningen ended up in the top three of happiest cities in Europe, after research conducted by the European Commission. On February 18th 2014 Faulty Towers The Dining Experience will set foot in Groningen for the first time ever. Is there a chance that the happiest city in Europe will become even happier?
Thousands of dinner guests from all over the world have enjoyed the show, based on the BBC’s hit series “Fawlty Towers”. Just last week the show was on in Rotterdam, leaving behind many a happy guest. Some Rotterdam guests and many others even wrote rave reviews about us on Tripadvisor. The Dutch theatre website Theaterparadijs said the show has ‘fantastic acting’ and ‘magnificent improvisation’.
So to all you happy folks in Groningen: come and show the Faulty’s you were definitely gifted with some humour. They will be at the lovely NH Hotel Groningen 18 – 23 February next year.
We opened in London’s West End with a full-time residency on 18 October 2012. So we’ve decided to make the whole of October 2013 our birthday month – or, more exactly, Basil’s Birthday Bash. To celebrate, we’re running deals and giveaways all month.
‘Deliciously entertaining from start to finish, this is not to be missed.’
