Don Juan in Soho was probably the funniest theatre experience I had this year. It was so funny I cried. Real streams of tears.
I’d read the play text and I was delighted that some text in the performance had been updated to poke fun at Theresa May and her ‘Strong and stable’ government.
Oh good lord David Tennant can wear a suit
When a woman in the audience laughed so loudly that DT broke, he recovered by incorporating her into the play. It was the funniest thing.
I saw the play on its closing weekend, mere days after a terrorist attack on London. The cast came back on after curtain and DT delivered a wonderfully sweary diatribe against the terrorist attack, thanked everyone for not backing down, for coming to the theatre, and there were collection buckets as we left.
