"Pete And Dud Come Again" to close early 22 April
Pete And Dud Come Again, has posted early closing notices and will now have its last performance on Sat 22 April 2006. (It was originally booking to 3 June).
Written by Chris Bartlett and Nick Awde, the show opened at the The Venue, in Leicester Square on 7 March 2006, following previews from 2 March to moderate notices from the popular press: FIONA MOUNTFORD for THE EVENING STANDARD says, " An unremarkable, acceptably entertaining new biographical drama." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "The evening can indeed be funny as well as cursory and a bit shallow." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Shambolic play...Yet, for all the show's faults, and they are legion, I must admit I laughed a lot."
The cast includes Kevin Bishop (Dudley Moore), Tom Goodman-Hill (Peter Cook), Alexander Kirk ( chat show host Tony Ferguson), Colin Hoult (Jonathan Miller), Fergus Craig (Alan Bennett).
Pete And Dud Come Again follows the rise and dramatic fall of the legendary comedy partnership. Returning from Hollywood in 1982 after his Oscar nomination for Arthur in which he acted with Liza Minnelli and John Gielgud, Dudley appears on a primetime chat show. Through a combination of flashbacks and sketches, their dream showbiz marriage is revealed as a divorce waiting to happen, starting with their first meeting on Beyond the Fringe.
