Has always wanted to catch this show, which is one of the more popular comedy in the West End. But we failed to get any tickets the weekend before last and I made the mistake of asking the person at TKTS counter whether she has got any other comedies to recommend. We ended up watching "Adsurd Person Singular". A word of warning here. Unless you are really really bored and have got cash to burn... please, oh please, give "Absurd" a miss.
It's not that the actors/actresses in "Absurd" is bad. In fact, that couldn't be further from the truth. Halfway through, the guy in front of me turned to his wife and said,"Dear, these characters are entirely believeable." That's the best compliment I heard that entire evening.
In my opinion, "Absurd" should be described at best as a dark comedy. I will prefer to call it a tragic comedy. We left the theatre feeling abit dejected about life.
Determined to watch "Boeing", we tried to get the tickets again last weekend to no avail. When we realized that it's the last show before it ends its run, the search for tickets become desperate as we went from booth to booth in Leceister Square. We did, however, managed to grab two of those few remaining tickets left in the Comedy Theatre's box office.
This time round, we went in with high expectations. And indeed, we weren't disappointed. Though I think that my ruptous laughter irritated the guy who sat beside me but I was beyond the point of caring. It was simply hilarious. That is what I called a comedy.
