Commentaires :
This was a gloriously camp re-creation of the film: Paris (berets and an accordion player), Switzerland (clock, bells, sheep and cows), finally Greece (blokes in white skirts, gold waistcoats and red caps); a tendency for the boys to strip continually down to their Y-fronts; an updating with some terrible jokes (one of Don’s gormless male friends gives him a baguette and says, knowingly. “Now you’ve got something else that’s nine inches” - another gets to Paris and says “I really want to go to the Louvre” only to be told “Well, use that tree over there”) - the whole show was gloriously awful. Darren Day managed a very creditable impersonation of Cliff Richard, and Hilary O’Neill stole the show with a totally over-the top comedy performance as the mother. The show was critic-proof, and packed with Cliff Richard/Darren Day fans who screamed their delight from start to finish. It had played a six-month sell-out season at Blackpool Opera House in the summer of 1996, and then toured before this six month season in London.
