"If you've never seen [Noises Off] with actors of the caliber of this production, well, it might be a little like going from basic cable up to High-Def... a very rich evening of detailed characters... every comic moment has been plumbed to its fullest depth... it's just amazing that the whole cast has so finely polished every one of their hundreds of little thoughts and decisions... at the opening night's curtain call, the applause was loud and long..." --Richard Green, TalkinBroadway.com READ FULL REVIEW

By Michael Frayn
Directed by Producing Artistic Director Jason Cannon
Called the funniest farce ever written, NOISES OFF presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called NOTHING ON. Doors slamming, on- and backstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.
"The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, well-known romp is a festival of delirium."â€”The New York Times
"The funniest farce ever written! Never before has side-splitting taken on a meaning dangerously close to the non-metaphorically medical."â€”New York Post
"As side-splitting a farce as I have seen. Ever? Ever."â€”New York Magazine
