This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of
Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance,
and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run. Michael
Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre behind the
scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress
rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final
performance. Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a
delightful backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers,
and, of course, flying sardines!
Arguably the funniest play ever written, Noises Off has been a crowd
favorite since it premiered in London in 1982.
A production crossed the pond and opened on Broadway in December of 1983 at
the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. American audiences had the same reaction
as those in Britain. The show was a hit and received a number of Tony
Awards including Best Director (Michael Blakemore) and Best Play, as well as
taking home Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk Awards. The original
Broadway production ran until 1985 for over 550 performances.
A film adaptation of the play was released in 1992 with a star-studded cast
including Carol Burnett, Michael Caine, Christopher Reeve, John Ritter,
Marilu Henner, Nicollette Sheridan, Denholm Elliott, Mark Linn-Baker, and
In the fall of 2001, Noises Off returned to the Brooks Atkinson
Theatre for its first Broadway revival. This production starred Patti
LuPone as Dotty Otley and Peter Gallagher as Lloyd Dallas. Again, the
play was nominated for a number of awards including the Tony for Best
Revival of a Play.
The most recent Broadway revival of Noises Off is currently playing
at the American Airlines Theatre starring Andrea Martin as Dotty Otley,
Campbell Scott as Lloyd Dallas, and Megan Hilty as Brooke.
A laugh-riot, Noises Off will give audiences a chance to see that
sometimes the funniest things that happen during a show aren't actually on
