Only Fools and Horses The Musical – Cushty!
Trigger's dodgy briefcases. Del Boy and Rodney break the chandelier. The broom gag. Batman and Robin costumes... oh, the memories. TV's Only Fools and Horses delighted several generations and still rates as one of Britain's funniest ever, best-loved, most often quoted sitcoms. Now it's due in theatreland and the anticipation is mounting fast. Don't miss this hilariously silly, delightfully fun show.
Add the brilliant Paul Whitehouse, who wrote The Fast Show (suits you, Sir!) and is apparently Jonny Depp's favourite ever comedian, to the mix and you're in for even more of a treat. He's the co-writer along with Jim Sullivan, the son of the sitcom's original creator John Sullivan. And the show takes place at a stunningly lovely venue, the magnificent Theatre Royal Haymarket, from February 2019.
The show features 20 dazzlingly silly new tunes and the late Chas Hodges, from the Cockney duo Chas and Dave, played a part in composing them. John Sullivan died in 2011, while working on the show, but it has been wholeheartedly, fully endorsed by his Estate.
The original TV characters were played by Sir David Jason, Nicholas Lyndhurst and Lennard Pearce. For the musical Paul Whitehouse plays the part of Grandad, and you can bet your bottom dollar that'll be a giggle. Tom Bennett plays Del Boy and Ryan Hutton plays Rodney.
The musical combines classic scenes from the original TV show with new material and new gags. It also stars old favourites Boycie, Trigger, Marlene and Denzil. Set in the year 1989 the plot sees Del and Rodney in love with Raquel and Cassandra against a Peckham landscape that's changing fast. The writers have been as faithful as possible to the feel of the series, but have also crowbarred in some contemporary issues in a seriously clever way.
The dazzling legacy of Only Fools and Horses is being admirably carried on thanks to this heart-warming and extremely funny show. It's packed with favourite moments from the TV show, including the infamous chandelier scene. Laugh? You'll laugh yourself silly. What a great British treat.
