The Opening Night performance of the farce Nothing On is just hours away, and as the cast stumbles through their final dress rehearsal, things couldn't be going any worse. With lines being forgotten, love triangles unraveling and sardines flying everywhere, it’s complete pandemonium… and we haven’t even reached intermission!
Can the cast pull their act together on the stage even if they can't behind the scenes?

Brace yourself for comic chaos with a rip-roaring new production of Michael Frayn’s (Copenhagen) beloved comedy Noises Off, starring an incomparable cast of Broadway favorites under the direction of Tony and Olivier Award nominee Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall Parts 1 & 2).

Quotation Mark

Act One of Noises Off is the final dress rehearsal for Nothing On, as the wildly underprepared company readies for opening night of a 12-week regional tour. No stranger to dealing with theatrical temperaments, director Lloyd Dallas (Campbell Scott) exhibits clenched-teeth patience that bubbles into furious exasperation throughout the process. In Act Two, the same act of the farce-within-the-farce is replayed from backstage, a month into the tour, as various romantic complications drive the company to sabotage and harm one another mid-matinee. Much of this is played out in near-silent slapstick. Act Three shows the same act in a performance at the shaggy end of the tour, when the mayhem reaches its zenith.

Frayn's theme here is the futility of trying to impose order on a world of chaos, an idea that fits snugly into the self-important microcosm of the theatuh, with its reverent conviction that the show must go on in the face of any and all disasters.

Dazzling though Mr. Frayn’s engineering is, “Noises Off” would be a mere dissertation in clever dramaturgical mechanics, were it not for the expertly drawn characters, here embodied by a first-rate cast well aware of the addictions, indulgences, pretensions and general egotism of actors (some actors!) that Mr. Frayn is gently playing for laughs.

Director Jeremy Herrin’s staging features a number of Roundabout regulars not known for broad comedy, but David Furr, Jeremy Shamos, Tracee Chimo and Kate Jennings Grant step up. Martin, a comic ace, brings signature unhinged unpredictability — a boon to any comedy. Daniel Davis, as wayward senior actor Selsdon, has a goofy demented look in his eyes. Megan Hilty lets it all hang out in pink lingerie and is terrific as a terrifically bad actress. Shining brightest is Rob McClure, who loads fun and finesse into the small role of an overtaxed prop manager and understudy, who shivers from stagefright like an overgrown Chihuahua. McClure is the icing, nuts and sprinkles all in one on this confection.
