Review by Tulis McCall 19 January There is no real purpose to Noises Off, making its third appearance on the Broadway stage, other than to give you a chance to laugh. Purpose enough for you? Michael Frayn has written a play that is a very slow car wreck — that car being the clown car at the circus, out of which tumble 18 or so clowns. Ever character in this play is a certified clown, although each would deny it up to and on their deathbed.
There's no business like show business, and when a less-than-stellar troupe of thespians tries to get their act together and take it on the road, there's comedy in their tragedy.

Noises Off Tuesday night for me was fun-filled indeed. There was an entire bunch of us present that night for the opening show of the play, 'Noises Off'. We were all members of a group called 'It's Showtime'. The group meets up once or sometimes twice a month with the intention of getting like minded people together to go watch a show.
One can attend solo or bring a friend along. The group meets up for movies, musicals, plays, stand up I've attended two such gatherings and I must say I've thoroughly enjoyed both the show, and meeting up with some fun people post the show. This time we all gathered to see the premier show of Noises Off, a very famous English play, which I had read up for while doing research for the blog.
It has even been adapted into a film of the same name. To quote the playwright Michael Frayn, 'A play is funnier from behind than in front, and I thought that one day I must write a farce from behind.
Noises Off is a play within a play. Its about a theater group putting together a sex comedy called, 'Nothing On', and the chaos and confusion then goes on backstage and during the actual show.
On stage during dress rehearsal Act Two: Backstage during a matinee performance Act Three: On stage during a delightfully ruined performance.
After long did I see a play that was so perfect when it came to comic timing. Such witty, slapstick comedy and exuberant performances from all the actors. Delightfully original one liners throughout the play. There is not a dull moment in the entire first act.
You are hooked onto the escapades and chaos that goes on. Its especially interesting to get a glimpse into what goes on during a dress rehearsal and backstage of a play during Act One and Two respectively. My only grouse with the play was the duration. At two hours not counting interval, it becomes extremely long.
Nevertheless, not a dull moment throughout. I would've thoroughly enjoyed this one, if only it had been shorter by 15 minutes or so.
