The Sunshine Boys

I went to see The Sunshine Boys at the Savoy Theatre a few days ago and it is so funny. 

Starring Danny De Vito and Richard Griffiths. The show manages to not only keep you entertained but also staggered at their ability to remember so many lines.

The story of two comedians who fell out years ago being coaxed together for one last show by Danny's long suffering nephew has you laughing throughout.

It is definitely a show worth seeing and although it is having to compete with the many musicals and plays in London it does an admiral job.

I paid £12 each for our tickets and these were for the balcony seats. We were moved down to the stalls as the theatre was not full which was a real bonus.

I have found that matinee performances during the week and Monday and Tuesday evenings are the best options for a possible upgrade.

While you wait to go into the theatre and during the interval you can people watch as taxis and limos arrive at the Savoy Hotel.  I have often thought that the hotel must find it annoying to have all these theatre goers right on their doorstep.

Business is business though and if the theatre is bringing in the money you just have to accept the crowds blocking the pavement I expect.
