Commentaires : Based on “Sganarelle, ou le cocu imaginaire” by Molière, this is a send-up of the 1940s musical where sailors on leave would meet up and fall in love with Rita Hayworth types, get into a series of misunderstanding and farcical situations, but eventually have a happy ending. With clever parodies of period songs, some wonderful puns and terrible jokes, this was deemed to be a delightful night’s entertainment. It ran a month at the King’s Head, and was then re-staged for a four month run at the Apollo, finishing in January 2000.
Presse : THE FINANCIAL TIMES says, "The crucial element is the joy of this comprehensive pastiche" and goes on to say "it is simply immense fun."

THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH says "The Original good time had by all."

NICHOLAS DE JONGH of THE EVENING STANDARD says, "A Saint She ain't slips down memory lane and stays for a salacious night out."

BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE of THE TIMES says, "Puns, quips, doubles-entendres, malapropisms and jolly repartee seem to come pouring out of every part of the stage..."

THE NEWS OF THE WORLD says, "A diamond studded cast. It's a delight."

However, JANE EDWARDES of TIME OUT did not care for the show saying, "What might be great for half an hour on the radio feels stretched to breaking point in the theatre."
