Already an established success in Paris as Pyjama pour Six, the initial London production of the English language version Don’t Dress for Dinner (translated by Robin Hawdon), ran for six years in the West End, opening at the Apollo Theatre and transferring to the Duchess Theatre. The play has also been performed in several US venues, as well as in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, and in different languages throughout the world, always to great acclaim. Marc Camoletti’s first great British success was Boeing-Boeing, which recently enjoyed a smash hit revival on Broadway following its West End triumph. The original London production ran for seven years at the Apollo and Duchess Theatres, notching up over 2000 performances.
