Only Fools and Horses the Musical description
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.
Who is this show for?
This show is recommended for people aged 12 and above.

I’ve been a fan of the originally TV series for a very long time, the show was amazing as the characters played their parts to the finest detail! Well done cast. I laughed so much that I cried! I would highly recommend.

Only Fools and Horses the Musical is a great night of nostalgia and fun. The story and characters remain true to the original and Rodney, Del Boy and Granda are great, as indeed are the other cast members. The singing and dancing routines are well choreographed and each word can be heard clearly. By the end you find yourself falling in love with the characters all over again and you don’t want it to end! Thank you for a great night!

Over the years I have seen theatre productions, but this is the best one ever. It was so professionally done and very accurate to the original characters. The acting and singing could not be faulted. If you were a blind person you would think that the original characters were on stage. Thank you Paul Whitehouse for bringing this to the west end. This is what we need for what people have through with covid 19. I will never forget this production.

Like many I have watched Only Fool and Horses, when it first came out and over the years on re-runs. I wasn't sure what to expect from such an iconic TV programme being put to music. This has been done in the best possible way, the show was fantastic, the story line had echo's of many of some of the most memorable and funny parts of the TV series and all the characters were true to how they were originally portrayed. It was funny, entertaining, there was a spot of ad libbing which had everyone laughing including the cast and the audience was made to feel a part of the show. I went with my 12 year old grand daughter and she loved it so much she wants to come back to see it again and I would have to agree I would happily watch this show again. Well Done to everyone involved in this production, you hit the nail on the head it was lovey jubbly.

Like many thousands of others I am a great fan of Only Fools, therefore I had to see this show. I wasn't disappointed and there were a lot of laughter from start to finish. The cast was very life like, however, I did feel that the oldest Driscoll brother was too much like Roy Slater and this spoilt it for me. Del Boy was very good, but resembled Harry Enfield. For me the star of the show was Rodney. Was nice to see the three wheeler and the chandelier.

The theatre venue is excellent and being small gave excellent viewing. The story line is an exciting compilation of scenes from old TV series. My main issue was that the humour was tame, few funny parts and zero raucous applause. We were in the stalls row E and for £140 per matinee ticket we felt value for money was not great. Show is overal OK but not special and lacked depth of quality hence our disappointment as it was nowhere near as sharp and special as the old TV episodes. Would score 6/10
