REVIEW: 'Allo 'Allo, presented by the Irving Stage Company, at The Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds




Bawdy, a little bit naughty and frequently hilarious, the Irving Stage Company's production of 'Allo 'Allo is a real crowd-pleaser.

Laden with the expected innuendo, catchphrases and high farce, the show hits all the right notes - thankfully much better than the reliably tone-deaf Madame Edith (Mandy Morrish).

With a show heavily reliant on physical comedy, slapstick and the occasional language mix-up, the talented cast deliver all this with aplomb.

Colin Musgrove shines as the forever put-upon café owner René, who is caught between the Resistance, the Nazis and the advances of Lt Gruber.

It runs at The Theatre Royal until Saturday, November 10.
