Review: The Ladykillers, Vaudeville Theatre

What a lot of fun! John Gordon Sinclair as Professor Marcus and Angela Thorne as Mrs Wilberforce are superb and Ralph Little is pretty good as Harry. If all the acting was at this level it would be perfect. The biggest applause in the first half was for the set which is brilliantly designed. I’ve seen many of the routines in pantomime but they were well performed. The standing joke of Mrs Wilberforce standing on Professor Marcus’s scarf was done perfectly. You never saw how it happened: it just did (and it played a crucial part in the plot). There’s so little happening in London in August, with all the serious critics up in Edinburgh, but this helped tide me over to September.
