I've just finished watching the DVD recording of By Jeeves and had forgotten how funny it was. I'm in love with PG Wodehouse's books as it is, but Alan Ayckbourne and Andrew Lloyd Webber's collaboration is hilarious, and really captures the essence of Wodehouse's stories and cast of misfits!

Unfortunately I never got see the stage production. Did any of you guys go and watch it? What was it like in a large theatre? What do you think? Apparently, when the show closed in London, it was announced "prior to a UK Tour" which alas never came off- more is the pity!

Also, I don't suppose anyone ever caught the famed Her Majesty's production of Jeeves in the 70s? One show I wish information on was more widely available. After hearing the legends I'm intrigued!!!

Simon.
