Starvox Entertainment presents an homage to the John Cleese TV series featuring the audience as guests at the wacky inn in a partially improvised show. Opens Feb 27 and runs to May 10, Tue-Thu 7 pm, Fri-Sat 6 and 8 pm, Sun 6 pm, mat Sat-Sun 1 pm. $60-$100. In the OKeefe Lounge.
This tedious, unfunny improvised dinner theatre show recycles a few gags from the 70s British farce about a harried hotel owner, his shrewish wife and their bumbling Spanish immigrant waiter. The actors carry on in true Brit style, but much of the humour now seems misogynist and xenophobic. And the food is as tasteless as the humour.
