French and Saunders at Drury Lane

The filler between 'Lord Of The Rings' and 'Oliver!' has been announced as 'French and Saunders -Still Alive!' A new live show that has just finished a national tour.

A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

It had great reviews- better than their last show did a few years ago. This will sell out fasto. They play for nearly 4 weeks.

The only time I've seen these live was when they did a special night at the Shaftesbury Theatre for theatre people about 20 years ago. I had been working all day and then had a 'few' drinks before the show started at 11.30pm. I was very tired and about 30/40 mins into their act I fell asleep.
I was in the front row!
Big mistake!
They spent the next 5 mins getting the attention of the whole of the theatre on this 'sleeping beauty' in the front row. They then stood on the very edge of the stage and threw a glass of water over me- as i jumped awake all i could see was the two of them running away like two naughty kids!
I was soaked and got a huge round of applause from the audience.
**I'm sitting in the balcony next time!!!!

I love French and Saunders and although their last few series have been a bit pants, I really want to see them live and will try and get tickets for it.

Will be interesting whether they can sell out the entire run at The Drury Lane but Dara O'Brian managed to sell out a one nighter at the Drury Lane as part of his tour so it can be done.
