GRIFF RHYS JONES STARS ALONGSIDE LEE MACK IN MOLIÈRE'S CLASSIC COMEDY THE MISER
Actor, writer, presenter, comedian and two-time Olivier award-winner Griff Rhys Jones returns to the West End alongside BAFTA and British Comedy Award winning comedian Lee Mack, who is making his West End debut in this hilarious new adaption by Sean Foley and Phil Porter of Moliere’s classic comedy, The Miser opening at the Garrick Theatre from 1 March 2017.
Griff Rhys Jones has most recently been seen on stage as Fagin in Cameron Mackintosh’s Oliver, and previously in Feydeau’s An Absolute Turkey.
Lee Mack is best known for his television and stand-up work. He is team captain on popular BBC panel show Would I Lie To You and a regular host on Have I Got News For You, Nevermind the Buzzcocks and 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.
Fanatical about protecting his wealth, the paranoid Harpagon (Griff Rhys Jones) suspects all of trying to flinch his fortune and will go to any length to protect it. A matchmaker motivated only by money, he sets his sights on wealthy spouses for his children, so his riches are safe from their grubby hands. As true feelings and identities are revealed will Harpagon allow his children to follow their heart, or will his love of gold prove all-consuming? Passion and purse strings go head to head in this rip roaring comedy, by France’s greatest dramatist.
This major revival is directed by Sean Foley (The Painkiller, The Ladykillers, Jeeves and Wooster), with further star casting to be announced. Book now to be among the very first to see this major revival.

Bit like a panto. Lots of Adlibs. Avoid the front rows if you don't enjoy audience participation.
Chris London Box Office customer
Poor storyline, weak jokes, very second rate. Not sure how this drivel made it to the West End. On the plus side, seeing rubbish like this makes you aporeciate the other excellent first class shows.
Lindsey London Box Office customer
Loved the show, but......
But......seating is very cramped and the view from upstairs is not the best. And some of the dialogue is very difficult to understand.
Karen London Box Office customer
A great comedy farce!
The show was excellent and played to Griff Rhys Jones strengths. It was the perfect platform for Lee Macks West end debut. Credit to Katy Wix and Matthew Horne and the rest of the cast. Thoroughly enjoyable play. Would love to see again but in better seats next time
Jane London Box Office customer
funny just isn't enough....
Fabulously funny show. The cast brought the characters to life and they looked as though they were enjoying themselves on stage. audience interaction was well placed and funny. A little but rude for younger teens but a great night out
Amanda London Box Office customer
Do not go and see this show if you are a fan of Moliere. The poor man will be turning in his grave. His subtle, witty tragi-comedy has been inexplicably dumbed down and bears little resemblance to the original. The actors do their best but they always seem up against it with a heavily adapted script that is often lame and slapstick comedy of the most basic kind. It's as if the director has no faith in either the original play or the ability of his actors to entertain and he therefore resorts to anachronistic gags and banal interaction with the audience for cheap laughs. It's pantomime at its most puerile.
Laura London Box Office customer
Moliere meets Panto
You'll enjoy this production of The Miser if you're not expected anything highbrow. It's a good laugh. Griff Rees Jones is excellent as the miser and Lee Mack is Lee Mack.
Denise London Box Office customer
Great funny show. Brilliant performances from all. Little bit rude so don't go if you are not broad minded. I loved it.
Kaye London Box Office customer
farcical in points but humorous
jill London Box Office customer

David London Box Office customer

Chris London Box Office customer

Nicola London Box Office customer
Sunita London Box Office customer
A must see
Great performance from a talented cast!
Chris London Box Office customer
Had to sit apart from my companion because we had seats 6 and 7 also had a column/pole blocking some of my view. Felt quite let down actually.

If you ask most people who work in the theatre they’ll tell you they hate the system whereby shows are allocated a quality rating of 1 – 5 stars. It means audiences make a snap judgement based on the scoring and don’t take time to consider the content of the review and decide for themselves whether they’ll enjoy a production or not.Read more
