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.

A HILARIOUS sketch which pays such wonderful tribute to the iconic programme.

Great fun!

The show was great. Paul Whitehouse was amazing. All the characters had mastered the voices and looks. Would recommend it. However was seated in the gallery and it was very uncomfortable and hot. Otherwise a great show.

A good tribute show

If you are a fan of the tv series definitely your going to enjoy the trip down memory lane however that’s all it is and the theatre was terribly cramped and so uncomfortable to really enjoy the experience, overpriced unfortunately


London Box Office customer

OK but much less than expectation

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

A truly brilliant homage to the best TV comedy ever!

This is one of the best and most enjoyable productions I have seen. It was true to the original TV comedy and was brilliantly, laugh-out-loud throughout. The actors played their parts to perfection and really brought alive the original characters from the much loved TV show. Superbly acted with brilliant dialogue delivery throughout, I would willingly go and see it again and I highly recommend the show to everyone whether An Only Fools aficionado or not. This is entertainment at its very best.

Lovely Jubbly

Absolutely brilliant show. Music and choreography were top notch. The characters were played brilliantly and the show had great references to the tv series. I would definitely recommend this to anyone whether a seasoned Only Fools and Horses fan or someone who has only seen the odd episode.

Amazing

It was really funny people sounded so like the orginal characters didn't won't it to end


London Box Office customer

The show was missing new material. Most of the jokes are classic lines from the series and it was disappointing to hear them re used


London Box Office customer

Great

Very good show


London Box Office customer

Cushty

Very cleverly written show incorporating lots of the well known events, sayings etc. It was so good that I forgot it was a musical (which I’m not keen on)

Review: ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES at The Theatre Royal, Haymarket

21 Feb 2019

Only Fools and Horses the Musical They seem an odd match, the opulent, elegant Theatre Royal, Haymarket and the BBC TV comedy Only Fools and Horses which dominated the television schedules in the late 1980s.
