Review: Fawlty Towers at the Northern Whig

Fitting tribute to a classic

The live dining experience is a tribute to the Fawlty Towers TV show

The Faulty Towers live theatre dining experience is a largely improvised show. It started from the moment we all arrived at the venue and heard Sybil cry out for husband Basil, who was busy barking orders at hapless waiter Manuel.

The actors did a great job emulating the madcap trio's vocal and physical quirks and overall the show is a very fitting tribute to the classic British sitcom.

There were many laugh-out loud moments at the expense of diners, including Manuel collecting glasses off peoples faces instead of the tables and Basil berating large sections of the Titanic-loving tracksuit-wearing layabout clientele for being frightfully under dressed.

The 1970s-inspired three- course meal wasn't to the same standard as the entertainment but still it's an exciting concept.
