By Jeeves, A Musical
March 31 - April 16, 2011
The Cannon Theatre is excited to present "By Jeeves"-----a musical comedy by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Alan Ayckbourn. This delightful musical adopts the village-hall show-within-a-show format. Bertie, having mislaid his banjo, rounds up the usual suspects and narrates an impromptu tale of thwarted love and mistaken identity under the direction of his trustworthy butler, Jeeves.
In the show we have vintage Lloyd Webber in the delightful Stinker and his would-be fiancée Stiffy, vintage Ayckbourn with the ladder gag and a confusion of handshaking which is close to the essence of Wodehouse farce. Enough sight gags and wit to keep even the youngest audience member entertained!
We have a terrific cast, with a ton of talent and lots of enthusiasm for this hilarious comedy based on the books by P.G. Wodehouse.
